BRAM TAYLOR "Further Horizons" Fellside FECD92

Bram Taylor is no stranger to the recording studio and "Further Horizons" is his fourth solo album. Not that he would have felt lonely recording these fifteen tracks since he has several musicians including Fiona Simpson, Tom McConville, Chris Lee and the Fellside "boss" himself, Paul Adams, keeping him company.

Bram Taylor's almost accentless voice and singing style is well suited to the good selection of mostly contemporary material he has recorded here. Huw Williams' "Blaina Boys", Peter Knight's "Let Her Go Down" and Alan Reid's "The Green And The Blue" set the standard. The last two tracks, "Somewhere Along The Road" written by Rick Kemp and the traditional "The Girl I Left Behind Me", are the best. Bram Taylor's voice soars away on the great song by Rick Kemp while "The Girl I Left Behind Me/Brighton Camp" has Bram and his accompanists "taking off their jackets" in the mood for a good "play" and ending this recording on an up-beat.
