Martin Carthy: Shearwater (Mooncrest)

Colin Irwin, Melody Maker, 22 February 1975

MORE RE-RELEASING of supposed folk classics from Mooncrest, although this one doesn't have quite the same aura as the others that have emerged from the label recently. It's partly because this is not so much from the archives as a recent work (it was recorded in 1972 but has only just been superceded by a more modern recording).
