Blimey these Geordie lads believe in working at break-neck speed!
It was only in October 2006 that I was discussing with Billy and Bob
that they should record an album together. Well, blow me down if they
haven’t succeeded and, as you’d expect the quality is exceptional.
On the back of a twenty-date tour together pulling what should have been two separate performances culminating with the pair playing together for a 20 minuteset they were already joining each other on over 90% of the evening. Not bad going I think you’d agree.
Basically a ‘best of…’ this recording provides the listener with a veritable smorgasbord including ‘Rocking Chair’, ‘Dance To Your Daddy’ topped nicely with the tune ‘The Spanish Cloak’, Jimmy Nail’s tremendous nostalgic view of the Tyne ‘Big River’, ‘Sally Wheatley’ and Billy’s ‘The Devil’s Ground’. Billy and Bob’s vocal performances aren’t so much good as towering and while folk music has ambassadors like these let’s count ourselves lucky that they have decided to settle in our camp. A round of applause should also go to Ron Angus who captured that real essence of a ‘live’ performance.
