Editorial Reviews

Unarguably England's most important folk group, Waterson: Carthy was created from the dynamic fusion of two generations, Norma Waterson and Martin Carthy and their daughter Eliza Carthy. Among many other honours and awards, each has been individually awarded 'The Folk Singer Of The Year' prize by the BBC. For any group to contain such a highly rated talent would mark it out, but to have three is almost too much. As the (London) Times says, 'There is a special magic when the clan pools its resources. The effect is sensational. ' This collection contains over an hour of prime Waterson: Carthy drawn from their five Topic albums along with the bonus of a previously unreleased live track.

Format: Audio CD
Whenever there's a "definitive" edition of someone's work, there's always room for fans to say "How could you leave out ____?" and I do have a few of those thoughts here. However, it's certainly a balanced collection, including all personnel past and present, plus a few like-minded friends on Track Two. And they do hit a few of what I'd consider must-hear pieces: "Bold Doherty", "The Forsaken Mermaid," and "The Devil and the Farmer" can tell any listener what Martin and Eliza Carthy and Norma Waterson are all about, and "Goodbye, Fare Ye Well" makes it clear what the ensemble can do. Plus, this is their only recording to include the preposterous, glorious "Jacob's Well"! I'd say yeah, even if you have their other cds, you need this one for "Jacob's Well" alone.
