First up London Bridge Is Falling Down by Peter Bradley Adams. Simpering rendition of the nursery rhyme, not sure Mr Adams had to repeat the title quite so many times.

Track 2 is Barnaby Bright with Reverend's Son. Great clean female vocal dominating guitar and backing vocal on sophisticated folk song. Very nice.

Colin Devlin singing Refuge is next. Another great vocal and piano opening. The vocal stays while the backing music builds some tension with stronger piano and other instruments. Very nice Folk Rock song.

Track 4 is Kat Maslich Bode playing Sky Falls. Very cool female vocal over active band complimenting the song. Sound quality is not the best but the singer imposes her will over the song and brings us a brilliant somber track. This ain't Folk this is great.

Another Barnaby Bright song this one is The Stone. Same great female vocal, stronger band providing much more noise on another quality song.

Colin Devlin playing The Heart Won't Be Denied. Low key male vocal dominates this simple singer songwriter number. Nothing wrong with this. Sounds great.

Track 7 Kat Maslich Bode playing March. Slow female s/sw feel to this song that allows Kat to showcase her voice as she ranges through powerful feelings in the lyrics. Another very nice song extended ending.

Peter Bradley Adams with Full Moon Song closes this excellent Folk/Rock/Singer songwriter sampler from Mishara Music. Much better than the annoying London Bridge we opened with, Mr Adams picks his guitar and sings a very nice controlled mellow song. Competent unspectacular song although I note from Wikipedia he has already arrived, probably playing better songs than this.

This sampler from the Mishara label follows the classic Amazonian free sampler formula of "good music for a great price." Essentially you have four artists represented, Peter Bradley Adams and his former bandmate from eastmountainsouth, Kat Maslich Bode; plus Colin Devlin of the fine band The Devlins, and Barnaby Bright, a folk duo from NYC. I've always liked Peter's music, as represented by his latest excellent album Between Us. The two PBA songs here are quite good. As for Kat, she has released very little recorded music since the breakup of eastmountain ('04), and it's great to hear her singing again. That leaves Colin Devlin, whose Devlins song "Waiting" is a favorite of mine (as heard on TV's "Six Feet Under"), and Barnaby Bright. Colin's songs on this sampler are both great. Barnaby Bright was the only name on this album I had not previously heard of, but it turns out they've also had songs on TV shows (ex., on "E.R."). I mistakenly thought Barnaby was a guy, although hearing the lovely voice of Rebecca Bright singing made me realize it's just the group name. (Rebecca is joined by her husband Nathan in the band.) Of the two BB songs here, "the Stone" is really nice, with an especially sweet vocal from Rebecca, but I'm not as enamored with "Reverend's Son," which has more of an ordinary Appalachian folk feel.

I stumbled on Mishara Music by accident, but it turns out that whoever put these albums together has really excellent taste in music. There's quite a lot of stuff that they are kind enough to give you for free; the catch is, the artists are so good, how can you help but want to find more of their music and then buy it? I guess they knew what they were doing by being so generous, right? If you like single voices with a folk-artist appeal, you will probably like the artists on this album. It's going to be fun finding more of their work and seeing what else I like of theirs. I suspect I will like most of it.

This is a nice, mostly quiet singer-songwriter sampler - exactly what I was hoping for when I downloaded it. I work at my computer a lot and like listening to music but find that most pieces distract me or interfere with my focus on the task at hand. This album doesn't. The songs are high quality and pleasant, relaxing yet not vacuous. I will definitely check out the individual artists featured on this sampler...

I found this sampler intriguing. I don't necessarily like every track, but I really enjoy many of them very much.

I have to say that it is just okay . . . not sure what I was expecting, but it wasn't quite what I got . . . there are some who will find this a good choice . . .

Once again Mishara has given us a sampler to introduce us to new artists that is vastly superior to the typical sampler. I do have an interesting observation. Maybe someone can tell me if Barnaby Bright's "Reverend's Son" borrowed the chorus from Gillian Welsh's "Caleb Meyer" or did they both borrow from some earlier tune?
