Black, Mary - Babes In The Wood Babes In The Wood
Folk Used - LP 040 Dara
Beautiful 1991 Irish Original With Custom Inner Sleeve. “Babes In The Wood Is Mary Black's Finest, Most Consistently Pleasing Album. There Is No Filler Here, And Her Song Selection, Culled From New Songwriters Such As Noel Brazil And Classic Folkies Such As Richard Thompson, Is Impeccable. The Acoustic Arrangements (Including Guitar, Piano, Mandolin, Dobro, And Accordion) Are Carried Out By Her Longtime Backing Musicians, Although The Music Has A Decidedly More Pop Than Celtic Flavor On This Album. As With Most Of Her Releases, There Are Many Romantic Ballads Sung With A Subtly That Adds Emotional Weight To Every Song. The Main Difference On This Album Is An Omnipresent Religious Tone, Whether It's Overt In The Gospel Opener "Still Believing" Or Just Below The Surface In Songs Such As "The Golden Mile." Even A Few Of The Love Songs Refer To Having Faith That Love Will Come Around Again After Heartbreak ("Just Around The Corner"). However, The Album Is Peppered With Playful, Upbeat Tunes That Propel The Album Forward To The Final Song, A Wonderful Cover Of Joni Mitchell's "Urge For Going." A Great Introduction To The Music Of Mary Black, And A Must-Own For Fans.” Vik Lyengar, All Music.... more details

Black, Mary - Speaking With The Angel Speaking With The Angel
Folk Audiophile - LP PPAN 014 Pure Pleasure
Sealed 2011 Limited Edition 180gm HQ Original Housed In A Gatefold Jacket. On This, Her Ninth Album, Mary Black Has Gone Back To Her Roots: It Is More Acoustic Than The Previous Album Shine. The Album Contains Incredibly Beautiful Songs, Like The Title Track By Ron Sexsmith "Speaking With The Angels", "Moments", "Cut By Wire" And A Great Cover Of "Fields Of Golds". Besides These More Slow-Paced Songs, The Album Also Contains More Up-Tempo Songs, Like "Message Of Love" And "Big Trip To Portland". This Is Certainly One Of Her Best Albums, With Some Delicate Songs Performed By Mary Black As Only She Can Do It.... more details
 
Black, Mary - Stories From The Steeples Stories From The Steeples
Folk Audiophile - LP PPAN 015 Pure Pleasure
Sealed 2011 180gm Limited Edition Gatefold Original. “Despite Its Title And Front Cover Art, Stories From The Steeples, Mary Black's First Recording In Six Years, Is Not A Collection Of Hymns. It Is Titled For The Dublin Studio Where It Was Recorded. These 12 New Selections Are, In Typical Black Form, An Impeccable Mix Of Traditional-Sounding And Contemporary Material. There Is An Enormous List Of Contributing Players On These Sessions, But The Constants Are Guitarist Bill Shanley, Keyboardist And Accordionist Pat Crowley, Double Bassist Nick Scott, And Fiddler Matt McGranahan. The Album's Opening Cut, "Marguerite And The Gambler," Written By Ricky Lynch, Is Certainly Informed By The Spirit Of Bob Dylan's "Lily, Rosemary And The Jack Of Hearts" (Though Dylan's Song Was Certainly Informed By Outlaw Tales Of The American South That Came From Centuries-Old Celtic Balladry In The First Place, So There You Go). It Contains A Stellar Arrangement That Highlights Piano, Mandolin, And McGranahan's Lonesome Fiddle. Three Duets Are Strategically Placed In This Set. “Walking With My Love,” An Easy Shuffler, Is Sung With Countryman And Irish Music Legend Finbar Furey, Who Also Plays Banjo On It. "Lighthouse Light" Sounds Like It Could Have Come From Ireland In The Early 1960s (And Maybe Its Melody Originally Did), But It Was Actually Written By The Boston-Based Irish Songwriter Ry Cavanaugh; It Features Black Singing With The Incomparable Janis Ian. The Real Surprise Though, Is The Album's First Single, "Mountains To The Sea," Written By Australians Shane Howard And Neil Murray. Walking The Line Between Celtic, Contemporary Folk, And Pop, Black Is Joined By Countrywoman And Chart-Topping Rock & Roll Singer Imelda May. Each Woman Does What She Does Best -- May Doesn't Rein Herself In, Black Doesn't Try To Rock It Up. Their Voices, Phrasing, And Timbres Complement One Another Beautifully, Weaving Together Seamlessly On The Refrain. Stories From The Steeples Is A Welcome Return For One Of Contemporary Folk Music's Finest Voices And Most Original Stylists; It Is Also A Stand-Out Album In Black's Solo Catalog.” Thom Jurek, AMG.... more details
