GALLEY BEGGAR Silence & Tears (Rise Above)
Another great album from Rise Above, with this six-piece folk-rock band delivering a superb collection of modern and trad arr. pieces. Obviously influenced by the holy trinity of Fairport/Steeleye/Pentangle, Galley Beggar nonetheless make their mark on the older material, while the nine-minute Pay My Body Home is the highlight of the album, with a languid first half leading into an acid-tinged folk-rock jam.
