Carthy, Martin - Shearwater Shearwater
Folk Used - LP CREST 25 Mooncrest
Beautiful 1972 UK Original. Appears Unplayed. “Martin Carthy Cut This Solo Album In 1971, Immediately After He Exited Steeleye Span Following Two Albums With Them, Please To See The King And Ten Man Mop. The Material Is Very Spare, Featuring Carthy And His Guitar Alone (Except On "Betsy Bell And Mary Gray," And Where Steeleye Span Alumnus Maddy Prior Appears On Vocals), Or His Voice Alone, And His Approach Is Very Studied And Deliberative Here, As Though Reveling In The Fact Of Singing And Playing Alone For The First Time In Several Years. Some Of The Material Is Rather Dark-Hued In Terms Of Story, Most Notably "The Banks Of Green Willow" (A Song Best Known In Its Classical Adaptations By Various Composers), "Lord Randall," And "He Called For A Candle," And "Famous Flower Of Serving Men," All Very Grim Stories -- Even "Outlandish Knight," In Which The Would-Be Female Victim Of The Title Character Turns The Tables, Is Pretty Dark. It Might Normally Be Hard To Recommend A Record Like This As A Potential First Choice, Except That "Famous Flower" Is A High Point Of Carthy's Career, One Of The Most Powerful Performances He's Ever Given On Record; "Lord Randall" Might Be The Best Version Ever Recorded Of That Song; And Carthy's Voice Is Astonishingly Powerful, Flexible, And Rich-Hued Throughout. The Lack Of Accompaniment Is Scarcely To Be Noticed On "Handsome Polly-O," In Which Carthy's A Cappella Vocal Seems To Have Undertones Of Its Own Accompaniment (One Can Almost Hear The Resonances Of Pipes And A Fiddle).” Bruce Eder, AMG.... more details

Carthy, Martin - Martin Carthy Martin Carthy
Folk Used - LP STL 5269 Fontana
Mint UK Blue & Silver Label 2nd Issue Stereo Housed In A Laminated Jacket. Recorded In 1965. “Carthy's Debut Album Rates A Place Alongside The Album By Bob Dylan, As The Debut Work Of A Man Who Ultimately Revolutionized Folk Music Performance In England (Carthy Is Mentioned As An Influence On The Notes To Dylan's Freewheelin' Album). This Is Carthy's Purest And Simplest Folk Effort, An All-Acoustic Recording Done In Barely An Afternoon That Includes His Version Of "Scarborough Fair," Awhich Paul Simon Learned From Carthy (Including The Chords And Changes From Carthy's Arrangement) And Transformed Into A Hit Of His Own. Also Here Is "Two Magicians," A Song That Later Entered The Repertory Steeleye Span, And "Lovely Joan," A Folk Song That Is Most Familiar To Classical Listeners As The Source Of The Counter-Melody To Ralph Vaughan Williams' "Fantasia On Greensleeves." The Playing And The Interpretations Are Somewhat Less Ambitious And Rather Rougher Than Subsequent Efforts, With Dave Swarbrick Guesting On Fiddle On About Half The Tracks, And Carthy's Guitar Covering All But The Acapella Tracks.” Bruce Eder, All Music Guide.... more details
Carthy, Martin - Second Album Second Album
Folk New - LP 12TS341 Topic
New, Unplayed 1977 UK 2nd Issue. “This Record Stands In British Music History And Carthy's Career Roughly Where Another Side Of Bob Dylan Does In American Music--The More Florrid Tracks Here, Recorded With Violinist Dave Swarbrick, Show The Path To The Bridge Between Carthy's Traditional Singer/Scholar Background And The Folk-Rock Played By Bands Such As Fairport Convention And Steeleye Span. "Lord Franklin" Is A Narrative Tour-De-Force (From Which Bob Dylan Got The Melody For "Bob Dylan's Dream" On Freewheelin' ), "Ramblin' Sailor" Is Boisterous Cautionary Tale About The Company The Title Character Keeps Ashore, And There's Also An Acoustic Recording Of "Sailor's Life," A Song That Fairport Convention Would Transmute Into An Epic Electric Version, And "Lowlands Of Holland," Which Steeleye Span Later Recorded.” - Bruce Eder, AMG... more details
