Folksie female siblings Shirley and Dolly Collins provide this week's Featured Album. Plus Stuart chooses his pick of not-normal music for your delectation.

Shirley Collins' uniquely plain yet prominent voice is one of the gems of English folk, accompanied here by her sister Dolly's sparse and haunting arrangements. 1970's Love, Death And The Lady is a mournful album with tales of murderers, thieves and wrong-doing.

The follow up to the more widely known Anthems In Eden, it glows with critical praise and is often hailed as the Collins' masterpiece. The music at times, seems in opposition to the vocals rather than accompanying it, which all makes for a challenging but rewarding listen.

A pivotal figure in the English folk revival of the 1950s and '60s, Billy Bragg has called Shirley Collins "one of England's greatest cultural treasures". She has had great influence as a performer.

There's a wonderful collection of Shirley's songs on a good-length CD called Fountain of Snow.

Many thanks for those links.
