Thread Name: Review: June Tabor and Oysterband.
Subject: RE: Review: June Tabor and Oysterband.
I always feel that I'm playing catchup (never was even approximately up to date, parental influences and all that) so I tend to ignore what might be vaguely contemporary, and the relevant shows, there being a lot of good stuff I don't know, so why suffer the dross.

I am one of those fans who feel JT is unlikely to mislead me, so I gave it a go, never having heard the song before. I've heard the title, and I've heard of its author, though, and I've even heard a few Ob tracks before thanks to JT. I wouldn't rave about it, but found it OK (believe me that's a pretty big step) it just seemed a bit short on substance for my taste, as do most of the few modern songs I hear.

Ah well, it's a dull day that I I don't find something new. I may keep a weather eye open for more. Definitely better than a large proportion of what gets broadcast.
