New Directions In The Old - "Another remarkable aspect of this album is Roy's use of some of the crop of young traditional musicians (Karen Tweed, Ian Carr & Andy Cutting) who sound totally in sympathy with the songs and the performance. This is an album from a man who served his musical apprenticeship years ago and is in total command of his trade. Surely the pinnacle of his recording output to date - a musical masterpiece from a master craftsman"
The Living Tradition, 1998
