Cry Me A Torch Song – the video version: December 2017

24 Dec

The December 2017 issue of Cry Me A Torch Song – The Video Version. Piers Ford reviews albums from Ange Hardy (Bring Back Home: “A voice with a pure and timeless quality, and sometimes seem to come through the airwaves like a nurturing echo from another age”); Karine Polwart (A Pocket of Wind Resistance: “A sensual exploration of territory and behaviour, compelling in its entirety”); Jane McDonald (Hold the Covers Back: “A polished collection of ballads and survival anthems, peppered with soul and gospel references”), and Sheridan Smith (Sheridan: “An accomplished album which showcases Smith’s interpretive gifts nicely – and much more than an identikit set of covers”).

    Jane McDonald’s excellent album is called ‘Hold the Covers Back’ not Hold Back the Covers. Quite important to get the title right as it’s also the title song…

      Thanks for correction and you are right, there’s no excuse other than haste. Rectifying now
