But this is a record that grabs attention right from the start, with its surfeit of invention, ideas and imagination. Glyn's music is difficult to get a handle on at first, with so many first-impressions forming a bewildering headlong rush through the ears.

But this is a record that grabs attention right from the start, with its surfeit of invention, ideas and imagination. A first hearing of tracks like Kafkaesque World can be distinctly overwhelming, with its potent juxtapositions lavish musical setting with smooth crooning delivery to voice the thoughts and words of a torturer.
Elsewhere, perhaps, it can be all too easy to get the feeling that Glyn is deliberately setting out to make an Impact capital "I"!
Now Roy has produced his final oh yes!!

So I guess a further release was inevitable! And let me say at the outset that it finds Roy on finest possible form: And of course in his choice of songs: Pride of place this time round goes to the four stunning songs from the pen of Seattle-based Jim Page, whose effective and resonant utilisation-cum-paraphrasing of borrowings from traditional and contemporary folk songs clearly strikes a chord in Roy while also recalling the comparable skill of our own Ray Hearne.
Here Roy also brings us a contrasted pair of fine songs by David Ferrard: These are affectionate, genial, commendably polished and admirably conservative though not especially sedate renditions which make a virtue out of their intrinsic Irish character and its lovable honesty.
Apart, that is, from an empathic take on A Song For Ireland itself and a particularly thoughtfully-turned version of The Ould Triangle these, more than any other tracks, make it clear that this project is rather a labour of love for Michael and Anthony, who are companionably accompanied on their worthy mission by guest musicians Paul Gurney, Noel Carberry, Aoife Kelly and Johnny Duffy on piano, bass, accordion, fiddle, banjo, uilleann pipes and whistles in straightforward and unfussy arrangements.
David Kidman July Aly Bain et al. This film was a natural follow-on from the Channel 4 series Down Home, and later paved the way for key collaborations in the Transatlantic Sessions series.
This celebration of cajun music and culture includes plenty of footage of musicians in their home environment, often in the same room as groups of dancers, and a tremendous feel of intense enjoyment permeates every second. Other, arguably lesser-known artists appearing include charismatic fiddler Harry LaFleur, vibrant singer D.
Menard with his Louisiana Aces and champion of progressive cajun, Wayne Toups; and Aly can be seen adding his trois sous to the musical gumbo by joining in enthusiastically at every session opportunity! This minute film is over way too soon, and fair exudes joie de vivre par excellence!
While on the other hand, tracks 12, 13, 14 and 16 of the audio CD are exclusive to that format But hey, laissez les bons temps rouler! Of the slower-paced tracks that are sensibly interspersed amongst the uptempo selections, the Rev.
Two abundantly fine musicians still at the top of their game after a quarter of a century - and showing no signs of decline whatsoever.

And barring a Free Reed box-set, a goodly series of "best-of" discs should be the next best thing. Elsewhere, the disc travels around much like the itinerant Aly himself!
Then, to balance these euphoric moments, the disc presents several of the thoughtfully considered slower compositions and arrangements in which Aly has also always excelled.
