Pamela Wyn Shannon - Courting Autumn (USA / Wales 2007) @320


Thanks to graaf24!
 
"A Most Beautiful Album...(Pamela's) singing is gentle and sensitive, and (she) creates a lovely and slightly strange atmosphere - but also occasionally a very unsettling one - that last verse of Cold Blows the Wind made me shiver. I loved Netherworld, and the subtle insistence of the arrangement. And of course I loved Ca' The Yowes - the sitar so haunting and so appropriate, curiously enough. (Pamela's) version of the song is utterly lovely, so sweetly poignant…It was one of the mother's and my grandmother's favourite songs, and we sang it a lot at home when I was growing up."
