Here is a sample of the reviews for Roy's latest recording:

i) ' album so impeccable, it must surely merit consideration as the best thing he's ever done' (Colin Irwin, fRoots June 2009);

ii) ' of the strongest albums of his long and illustrious career' (Mike Newman, Taplas June 2009);

iii)'...accompanied by ... John Kirkpatrick, Martin Simpson, Andy Cutting, Kellie While and adding Base, Andy Seward... The quality of these musical friends is testament to the respect that Roy commands from his fellow professionals and as listeners we should also thank him for bringing these fine songs to our attention' (Steve Henderson, Folk North West June 2009)

iv) 'Still angry after all these years. For someone in his 74th year who announced his farewell to recording with the Coda album eight years ago, Roy Bailey displays startling vigour as he flies the flag for music of social commentary……… (**** MOJO August 2009)
