Quite a change of pace for Mr. Carthy. Alongside the traditional music and songs by Mike Waterson and Leo Rosselson, there are two of his own compositions--the first he's ever felt comfortable enough to record. Both "Company Policy" and "McVeagh" sit well on a record that simply confirms Carthy's utter mastery of English folk. Settings poems from e.e. cummings and the public domain of music offer him new possibilities, a place for past and present to seamlessly mingle. Hard as it is to believe, his guitar playing gets better and better--refined, saying even more with fewer notes--and his voice, now with some creases of age, is like well-worn leather, supple but firm. Listen to the music of a master. --Chris Nickson
