5.0 out of 5 stars Listen to this album and be part of it. March 11, 2002
Format:Audio CD
For years I had thought this group a myth. I could find no information in music encyclopedias, or on Judy Dyble on the internet. I had only known that she had gone on, after singing on the first Fairport Convention album, to record for a band called Trader Horne and then the Coxhills. To say that it has been worth the wait would be a sad understatement of how immersed I became in the mood of the album even after the first song.
So many are the moments of magic on this album. It's main theme is simple, the journey into adulthood. The opening song, "Jenny May" sets the whole scene of the album nicely. It is a child's invocation to a friend to come out and play, to step into a special world of make-believe. Such is the world the listener immediately becomes immersed in.
The music, much of it accoustic and accompanied by harpsichord, is gorgeous and is a perfect partner to the range of lyrical imagery from flying witches to mermaids. These are songs about what you used to imagine (I did at least) in your woods when you played in them on sunny afternoons. To borrow from the sleeve notes, these are songs to find in your cupboards and under your pillows. They are snatches of memories past that sometimes find their way into the present and offer unique glimpses into today.
I think the defining moment of Morning Way is "Mixed Up Kind", another song about passing into adulthood. The first verse totally knocked me out. Other hight points are the instrumental, "Three Rings For Elvin Kings" and "Children of Oare". Special mention goes to the title song, one of the three contemporary songs, along with "Sheena" and "Down and Out Blues" that grace the album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Time Travel Is Possible March 22, 2005
Format:Audio CD
When Judy Dyble left Fairport Convention way back in the 1960s, many distraught music fans kept an eagle eye out in the music press to see to what she would turn her hand next. She was clearly wondering herself as on 1 June 1968 she put a "Musician Wanted" ad in Melody Maker. When Peter Giles responded by telephone, the call was answered by boyfriend Ian McDonald. This led to both of them working with Giles, Giles and Fripp, the ensemble which was to mutate into King Crimson. But a month later Judy and Ian's relationship was over and she left once more.

Jackie McAuley had been organist and guitarist with Them during their rumbustious Angry Young Them period, and when Van Morrison had split the band some of them including Jackie and his drummer brother Pat had kept going, attracting the attention of Los Angeles producer Kim Fowley. He christened them the Belfast Gypsies and recorded with them a spirited rewrite of Gloria called Gloria's Dream, as well as the psych beat track People! Let's Freak Out which they released under the pseudonym the Freaks Of Nature. Then Jackie had briefly formed a band with Paul Brady in Dublin, called Cult, and travelled across Europe and Morocco, each widening his musical horizons.

This disparate duo forged an unlikely alliance in 1969 when they formed Trader Horne (the name of John Peel's nanny, apparently) and made some live performances. I was lucky enough to see them at Mother's Club in Birmingham.

A single was released called Sheena, with a Judy Dyble song on the flipside, Morning Way, which became the title track of this, their only album.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the greatest folk rock albums ever! June 25, 2012
By Michael
Format:Audio CD
The other reviewers have already used up all the superlatives I would have used myself so I won't bother repeating them, but suffice it to say that if you want to hear Judy Dyble's best work this is it, while the duo as a unit produce some of the best songs most bands produce in their entire career on just one album. Needless to say, this is a must have for fans of early Fairport Convention, Trees, etc. It's impossible not to fall in love with it on the first listen.
