Waterson, Norma - Norma Waterson CD (Mega Blowout Sale)

“Norma Christine Waterson is an English musician, best known as one of the original members of The Watersons, a celebrated English traditional group. Her eponymously titled solo debut Norma Waterson was produced by John Chelew and released by Hannibal Records in 1996, and was well received in the scene (including a nomination for the Mercury Music Prize), featuring collaborations with her daughter, Eliza Carthy, Martin Carthy and other members of The Watersons, as well as Danny Thompson (Pentangle), Richard Thompson (Fairport Convention) and Roger Swallow (Albion Country Band). The album was nominated for the 1996 Mercury Music Prize and came a close second to Pulp's Different Class.”

“Top of their game performances from everyone involved. Everyone sounds so inspired, Norma's voice is incredibly rich and evocative, Richard Thompson is stunning, Eliza Carthy's fiddle work especially at the end of "Outside the Wall" will make you weep.
Martin Carthy, Danny Thompson, Roger Swallow round out this veritable supergroup. This should reach a much larger audience...it's a fully realized album that works as a whole from start to finish.”
