5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Matt McConeghy on December 13, 1999
Format: Audio CD
This group has been playing together for many years. The sound of the album reflects that. They all sound as if they have a great appreciation for what the other person is doing. They don't get in each others way. The melody is clearly carried along and they have a lot of fun with it. To take these very simple tunes and make them sound this good really is a sign of great musicians. I don't know if people who are unfmailiar with Contra and English COuntry dance will like this album, but anyone who likes this style of music will enjoy it, and it is very musical and melodic, so lots of other people who are turned off by the mixed production and musical qualities of folk albums by other groups, will enjoy this. It is good music played with spirit, skill, style and taste,

I don't knwo how this music is for dancing, not being one, but as a musician and a listener, I find this album a joy through and through. Bare Necessities is a quartet of musicians (pianist, 2 violinists, and a flute/recorder/guitar/penny whistle player) with a taste for very pleasant ornamentations on the melodies. I can't describe the music to you, but if you remember Ken Burns' "Civil War" series, you -may- recall the light, soft piano throughout - - the pianist there was in this group, and her delicate style is in evidence here. The songs here are rarely delicate, but the ornamentation is light. Some of the songs are fast elizabethan tunes like Jamaica, and use interesting chromatics (Jamaica itself sharps the fourth and fifth notes of the key), others have haunting melodies (Well Hall). I've been listening to this since, oh, 1984, and am completely taken by it.

As a one-time student of late seventeenth-century English music performance practices, I was slightly wary when I read of the piano's more-active-than-usual role in this recording, but upon actually hearing the recording I was absolutely enchanted by the thoroughly delightful work of these wonderful musicians. My musical tastes tend to run to more staid music such as Byrd's Masses, Purcell's Fantasias for Viols, Bach's Keyboard Partitas and the occasional dalliance with more modern stuff like Mozart's Clarinet Quintet, but this recording has just edged out Steve Martin's The Crow: New Songs for the Five String Banjo as my favorite joyous CD.

Bare Necessities is a joy to dance to, either in person or in recording here. All the songs are quite danceable and also great to listen to.
