Thread Name: June Tabor where to start ??
Subject: RE: June Tabor where to start ??
Anybody wanting to buy a first album of her may wish to consider "Against the Streams."

I bought it at a concert where she was singing mainly from that, as it was at the time her latest album. Stunning.... Especially Les Barker's (serious for once) song Turn of the Road.

Since then, I have had the pleasure of meeting her when a band I was playing in was on the same stage at a festival and found her charming, nice and an all round wonderful person. I'm not normally that gushing about people and it can sound as if I were a bit star struck, but yes, she is a credit to the industry.

(A sound engineer she has worked with told me they call her" One Take Tabor" as she does tend to get it right first time.)
