Martin Simpson - Kind Letters
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 24/02/2008 07:14:01
I've just had a bit of a retro moment brought about by a recent performance from Martin Simpson. Watching him at a festival, I was surprised at just how amazing he was - then I found myself asking myself why ? I've known Martin for many years (going back to my days as a resident performer at the Half Moon in Putney) and of course I've kept an occasional eye out to see what he's been up to but not since the halcyon days of the Golden Vanity and A Cut Above (with June Tabor) have I sat up and really paid attention. Possibly this was due to the fact that I always preferred it when his performance included more traditional material. On this score I couldn't be more pleased. This is an album of stunning beauty that will take your breath away if you are a guitarist and his choice of accompanying musicians including Nancy Kerr & James Fagan along with Chris Parkinson and the band Danu can't be faulted. The banjo technique transposed onto the guitar ('Love Henry') would make many of the guitarists I know go weak at the knees whilst his vocal delivery somehow puts me in mind of the warm tones of a young Burl Ives. On the same track the dramatic use of several violins and subtle use of electric guitar add more to his sense of dynamics. This is storytelling at its best which makes you really listen to the lyrics and of course these are great tales some of which, if taken in the context of today's tabloids would have sordid headlines screaming from the page. A rare thing for me, but I couldn't find one duff track which of course is the ultimate goal for any musician and considering that there are quite a few standards including 'The Cruel Brother', 'Adieu, Adieu' and 'Creeping Jane' you'll be left wanting for more. As ever with Topic records the packaging is a delight with great photographs (courtesy of Brian Ledgard) and the design and illustrations by David Bailey should garner an award or two.
