Amoeba Review

Tiffany Anders 10/19/2010


Traditional folk vocalist Shirley Collins made a bold move when she joined forces with The Albion Band to release her first folk-rock album No Roses in 1971. With a sound similar to British folk-rock pioneers The Fairport Convention (which is not surprising as both Richard Thompson and Ashley Hutchings make an appearance here), Collins uses all traditional material, and for the first time uses electric instruments blended with traditional folk instrumentation (accordion, harmonium, and fiddle). While some songs are more steeped in tradition than what The Fairport Convention were doing, particularly on tracks like “The White Hare” and “The Little Gypsy Girl,” and Collins lilting soprano voice remains authentic to the folk music of the Renaissance era, the overall feel of the album is shockingly similar to The Fairport Convention and should very much please fans of that brand of British folk rock.
