Subject: RE: Review: Kate Rusby, Girl Who Couldn't Fly
Well for perspectives sake . I went to Kates web site the other day and saw there was a new CD so on the way to the movies in Torrington Connecticut I stopped at a Stawberry's CD store and just asked if they had the new Kate Rusby CD. Yep right here . <><> So thats pretty main stream for sales .
                James Taylor once said something about his abilaty was in a certain area . I love what he dose so I dont mind that everything is of a "Type" I give the same answer when listening to Kate . I love what she dose and it is of a wonderful honest type .
                  It is not her job to be less english /celtic and slightly generic because what she dose comes from what I perseave as an honest place for her in her generation and thier perspective ( which is different then mine ) . I would love to hear her do an albun of clean english folk without so much "generic celtic " addition . Say in a Ry Cooder sort of production Less is more . Probably would have a very small audience but could be very powerful . I think her use of the collery band is a perfect sound that comes from her background.Briliiant ! The open layering of notes as anckored is something she is getting better and better at .
                  THis is a very very good CD . Because of its paice I do like to listen to it in sections . I am very thankful Kate Rusby is in the world making music .
                  I also think her husband John needs a nod for very tasty production .Its a lot of work being a team and this cd shows a lot of development by both of them !!!! All the best , Guy
