What a bonus that there are so many other outstanding tracks, all of which conspire to earn it five stars. I hadn't previously heard of her this album dates back to , but she is now up there with the likes of Judith Durham 'The Seekers' , Loreena McKennit, Kate Bush, Enya, and several others in my pantheon of muses.
I have heard many versions of 'Matilda' over the years being an ex-Australian soldier myself , and I have to say that Priscilla's is without a doubt the best of them. The CD jacket contains brief explanations of the songs' origins, with credit to the original writers. Many are poems by Australia's 'People's Poet', Henry Lawson, and other poets of British and Australian origin; she has done their work great justice. If you like any of the other vocalists I have mentioned here, this CD will surely not disappoint you.
All of Priscilla Herdman's albums are worth owning, though some are, in my opinion, a bit overproduced. This is the gem and truly one of the most beautiful albums you will ever hear. The songs, most based on poems of Henry Lawson, form a coherent arc which stays with you. The tasteful playing, by great musicians, is always just enough to enhance each song but without unnecessary flamboyance.
Her voice, always beautiful, is completely at one with the songs. Having bought this album when it was released on vinyl, the cd release was a wonderful surprise. A great, great album and one for the ages. Thrilled to see this reisuse. Introspection Late Night Partying. Rainy Day Relaxation Road Trip.
