Thread Name: Review: Damn Your Eyes Doctor (Peter Taylor)
Subject: DamnYour Eyes Doctor by Peter Taylor
I enjoyed this cd very much.
14 tracks of traditional material accompanied by Peter on acoustic guitar.
Peters singing is tuneful and his diction is very good, every single word can be understood, his accompaniments never distract from his singing, they are unobtrusive but perform the function of accompaniment as it should be, that is to accompany the song sympathetically.
The tracks that stood out in my opinion were The Black cook[ an unusual song about body snatching]which is rarely heard in Folk clubs these days, and StowBrow.
Peter cites his influences as Dave Burland, TonyRose and Martyn Wyndham Read, three excellent revival singers, who are good models for all singers.
This is an excellent album of traditional folk songs well sung and well played.
Peter is a member here[so much talent on mudcat] and can be contacted here as The Doctor. well done Doctor,damn your eyes.
