I was looking at a threat about the Unthanks and their version of Annachie Gordon was mentioned. I had a look at them on You Tube and didn't care for the way they did the song. But, I saw a version by Sinead O'Connor (not really my favorite singer, but I was curious so I gave it a listen). I really like her version! She does perpetrate the Mary Black errors of ("Harking" is bonny, Annachie Gordon, he's bonny and he's "rough") but still, it's lovely.

Sinead O'Connor's Annachie Gordon

S'ok... but not a patch on the sublime version by the Unthanks. Horses for courses, I suppose!

Are they errors? Or is it the 'folk process' at work? Nice enough version.

Loreena McKennitt sings it beautifully too. It's on one of her earlier albums, with very spare instrumentation I seem to recall. I even prefer her version to Mary Black's, which is saying something.

I've just listened to Sineád, and I like her delivery but unfortunately find the persistent rhythm of the accompaniment too instrusive, and it's just distracting. I wish I could hear her without it. That powerful song does not need to be "dressed up". I'm afraid I find the Unthanks' version quite underwhelming, sorry Spleen!

Sinead's version is good, the Unthanks is excellent but they all bow to the version by the great Nic Jones, which directly or indirectly is where they all got it from.
