This is exactly why I like boot fair shopping: buying albums for 50p that I know by repute and suspect I’ll like. And so it is with this quiet Brit-Folk jewel. Featuring the cream of the scene’s players (Martin Carthy, Nic Jones, Danny Thompson, et. al.) and a striking sleeve by Mick Rock, Silly Sisters is a charming album of trad. arr. songs with a subtle feminist undercurrent, despite the presence of an otherwise all male cast.
