Subject: Review: Archie Fisher 'Windward Away'
From: maeve
Date: 07 Aug 08 - 08:44 AM

Please join me in celebrating the new cd release from my friend Archie Fisher; thirteen years in the making. It's on the Red House label, found here:

http://www.redhouserecords.com/


Don't look for critical commentary from me, folks. I've waited for this for a very long time, and I'm more than delighted by what I'm hearing. Archie's guitar work continues to fill my ears with the beauty of the Borderlands, the sea, Ontario, a beloved horse. He sings of all of these, as well as of friendship and love.

New tracks included are:
Borderlands, Ontario Dust, Bonnie Border Lass, Windward Away, Surge of the Sea, River and the Road, Shepherd on the Hill, Every Man's Heart, Ride Through the Rainbow, Speak Your Name, Before Eternity

I've had an early version of "Windward Away" (in poem form, then called "Neptune's Daughter) framed on my wall since the early 1980s, and had in fact set it to music before I learned it was still under revision. I finally know how it was resolved!

Along with the new tracks, there are eight tracks from a once-missing master recorded on the Blackbird label when he was touring with Tommy Makem and Liam Clancy.

Tracks from the missing master are:

Final Trawl, The Winter It Is Past, Silver Coin, Star of Belle Isle, Ashfields and Brine, Eire Lingers, Cuillins of Home, Joy of My Heart.
Some of the "missing master" instrumentation surprised me, yet I enjoyed all of the older cuts.

Supporting musicians include Archie Fisher, Flyde, David Paton, Allan Barty, Lucy Cowan, Francis Cowan, Christina Cowan, Mike Whellans. The sound is clean, the musicianship exquisite, and I am so very happy to have this album at long last. I will be learning and singing every one I can glue to my memory.

Thank you to Red House Records, to Hart Street Studios, engineer Roy Ashby, all of the musicians, and to Archie. I am grateful to have this music at long last.

"Archie tours in Canada for the most part, since our dear land is hard on visiting musicians"...which dear land is that then, dear?

I'm so happy to hear this. A few years back I had the great thrill of opening for Archie when he played Perth, ON. (and frankly, if he tours only in Canada, he needs to get out more, we haven't seen him since). The peak of my career. At that time, he had zero recorded product available for sale at his gigs. A friend of mine actually brought a bunch of Archie's old LP's for display in the foyer so it wouldn't seem so empty...oh my god, I have to go buy this right now!
Keep at it Archie. Thanks Maeve.

Stewie,

It's good to hear your cyber voice. We do seem to be here less than once we were. I had an interesting thing to occur today. We hit a pothole that was so deep that when we looked down in there, a family from Melbourne was way down in the bottom o' it having breakfast! They said they knew of you from Mudcat but they'd not ever got as far as your Darwin to meet ya in person. --- Surely, it's a shrinking world we inhabit these days.

All the best to you folks,

Thanks Maeve. Knew it was coming but didn't know it was out. First saw Archie about 1974 or 75 when Jean Redpath was teaching at Wesleyan in CT and brought him to play at the Sounding Board in Hartford. Subsequently got to know his sisters Ray and Cilla. Amazing family. Wonder how Ray is doing. I'll be getting this cd real soon.

This has not been out of my CD player since I heard about it on Lester Simpson & Mick Peat's BBC Derby radio show, "Folkwaves," a few weeks ago. I ordered it from RedHouse immediately.

Agree about Ontario Dust. Great, evocative song. Not sure about the Graham Miles piece. Beautiful tune, and beautifully sung, but the words were a wee bit too depressing for my taste. Maeve, I'm with you about "Before Eternity." It's my kind of song. Maybe you can get the Quasimodal Chorus to do an arrangement? Otherwise I'm going to call you up and insist we harmonize on the phone, because it's the one I need to learn too.

Having worked with Archie 30 years ago, when I played cello on his Folk-Legacy LP, "Man With a Rhyme," I have long been an admirer of Archie's amazing musicianship and songwriting ability. This new CD is an extraordinary testament to both. Definitely worth waiting for.

Kath- Wonderful to see your post here! I'd love to do a choral arrangement and I'd love to sing it with you, preferably in person!
Stay in touch, eh?

When I hear or sing the Graham Miles piece, I don't find it depressing. The "Loneliness" refrain carries the alone yet not hopeless sense for me; kind of a shepherd's blues feel.

"Woke up this morning,
the sheep got lost today.
My lady Loneliness
Has carried me away.
I've got the shepherd blues...
Baa-aaa-aaad blues!"

I'm learning "Windward Away" too. I waited a long time to sing that one. Also "Every Man's Heart".

My copy arrived last week and is getting a hammering. I LOVE Ontario Dust. He has SO caught the limbo feeling when you get home from a long trip abroad. You are still in that way of living, "home" is unfamiliar and it's the wrong bloody time!
The older stuff sounds over-arranged in comparison to the new, but you would never know there 30 years between recordings of his voice.

I agree the older stuff has some overproduction, but I am so glad to have a recording of "Joy of my Heart" finally. It is the loveliest song about home I have ever heard.

I picked up the CD this weekend after finding out here it existed.

Shepherd's Song is melancholy but is quite evocative.

Thanks for the heads up. The only time I heard ArchieFisher live was decades ago, with Garnet Rodgers at the good ol' OTSFM in Chicago. They had a good time with "Night Visiting Song" -- Garnet's standard joke about the speed bump.

Thanks for posting, MAG and IreneM and everyone else. I am glad you like the Shepherd song MAG, and delighted that several of us have bought the cd. The best way to get a Stateside tour is to show there's a good enough market. Buying this new album helps prove the point, so thanks to everyone who has shelled out the money.

Archie and Garnet have a CD called "Off The Map", recorded live. Joy Of My Heart is on that.
Archie once said that someone asked him to sing "that song about Fair Fiona". Turns out they thought the words were "Sing me O the coolies of Skye, of haggis and egg and fair Fiona...."

...Three of the world's finest songwriters and most respected singers have decided to take their friendship on the road. Having come together for several years while on a cruise they found that their music has a great synergy. James has toured separately with Archie and Jez and when they again all found themselves staying in the same house last Fall the idea for the tour was born."http://woodenshipproductions.com/
