Editorial Reviews

The Cake Sale was devised by Brian Crosby of Irish indie-rockers Bell X1 as a collective and concept album benefiting the Oxfam organization s Make Trade Fair campaign and their other poverty relief projects. With a roll call that includes Gary Lightbody (Snow Patrol), Glen Hansard (The Frames/ONCE), Nick Seymour (Crowded House), Nina Persson (The Cardigans), and solo artists like Gemma Hayes and Josh Ritter, The Cake Sale features an incredible list of talented songwriters and performers who have donated their publishing royalties from the project to benefit Oxfam s worthy global causes.

Recorded in Dublin throughout last year, the bones of The Cake Sale s tracks were laid down by Bell X1 duo Crosby and Paul Noonan along with Crowded House bassist Nick Seymour and drummer Graham Hopkins. Much like the case of Gary Lightbody and Lisa Hannigan s Some Surprise, lead vocals for much of the album were recorded in different studios around the globe. Despite the disparate location of the musicians, the resulting record is a cohesive collection of songs from a group that made it a point not to fall victim to charity compilation album clichés. We wanted to make an album that benefited this great cause but also one whose songs related to each other in a relevant way, says Crosby. Mission accomplished.

Every song is either wonderful the first time or after a few listenings. The CD was created for a charity event. Canadian Emm Gryner's "Black Wing Bird" is sung beautifully by Swedish treasure Nina Persson. The arrangement is superb. (Gryner who has a wonderful voice herself is one of the musicians on the CD but doesn't sing.)

This is a good little collection of songs, that compliment rather than enhance a collection. Tracks such as 'Some Suprise', 'Black-Winged Bird', & 'Last Leaf' all hit the right notes, but Conor Deasy's version on the Josh Ritter composition 'Good Intentions Rust' is truely aweful and looses 2 stars for me. A great cause 'OXFAM' benefitted from the sale of the album and all collaborators seemed to have enjoyed the process. It is worth the price for the above songs at least and is a welcome diversion from other sorry attempts at charity records.

Pretty decent mix of good artists. Good buy for the price. I love Lisa Hannigan so this was an easy sell.
