Thread Name: BBC4 Christmas Session
Subject: RE: BBC4 Christmas Session
Its just my personal disappointment that a band who's music I enjoy very much,
is for my own taste becoming too overshadowed by the foibles of its lead singer.
I accept most of what you say Tom regarding live shows, but I find him a little overpowering and grating
on the Band's new CD recording.
That's a matter to consider when it came to the working relationship between the band and veteran producer John Leckie.

Its not so much I begrudge any performer celebrating and incorporating their cultural influences, but there is a limit before it starts feeling forced and irritating.

Of course I'm hoping their next CD will be brilliant, but I'll think twice next time before I buy it unheard.
