Eliza Carthy's solo debut followed a collaboration with Nancy Kerr and an album with her band, The Kings Of Calicutt. The latter remained on the shelf until after the 1996 release of HEAT LIGHT & SOUND. All the featured tunes are English, something that doubtless pleased her parents Martin Carthy and Norma Waterson, as both were champions of the genre at a time when it was overshadowed by Celtic music.
This delightful set, which is entirely traditional save for one tentative original, includes a jaunty tale of deception, "Cold, Wet & Rainy Night," and a fine version of "10,000 Miles" appended by a morris jig. Other highlights are remarkably assured deliveries of two of the great Child ballads, "Sheath & Knife" and "Clark Saunders," the latter sung unaccompanied.
