C*******s
« on: Monday, September 21 2009 02:12PM GMT-1 »
Sorry to mention the dreaded word so early but I came across this on Amazon last week.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/English-Folk-Christmas-Various-Artists/dp/B000IB0DU8/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&s=music&qid=1253538683&sr=8-3

It obviously isn't new and wonder if anyone has it already.

I shall not be listening to it until late November!!

Yes, it's on my wishlist! No-one's succumbed and bought it for me yet though  :'( Might have to buy it for myself soon!

Have obviously spent too much time on melnet recently, as I honestly thought the c*s was going to be concertinas  ::)

We have that!

It's very nice, well sung and played, but it tends to go on a bit  ::)

It comes across best if you bung it on your mp3 player and have it on shuffle, mixed in with other 'related' albums.

(Personally, I reckon the Sea Shanties one is a better buy... )

Cheers

I can't compare yet Nick as I haven't listen to this one but I agree the Sea Shanties is very good and can be listened to all year round!!

The nearest thing to a C*******s album I'd have would be th Phil Spector one.  Bah humbug.

Oooh, one of my favourite albums at Christmas. It wasn't till a year after I bought it did I discover who the people on it actually were!

I bought it on Ollie's recommendation!  Don't the sea shanties one though - perhaps that should go on my C*******s list!

I've got that one on my mp3. I do find it odd listening to christmas tunes in the middle of summer when they come up on random....  ;D

The Sea Shanties came in a double set with other sea themed (classical) music (but it doesn't have the Britten Sea Interludes which is my fave bit of non folky sea music...).

We are listening to Sea Shanties a lot these days  ;D

Rosie! We will have to drum you out of the forum!

I've got the Sea Shanties too - it's good for different versions of Old Maui and Fire Merengo - and John Kanaka always makes me laugh!
