Prime Meridian by Compass Want a songbag that reflects a diversity of folk influences? Here is a mix by a quartet of unabashed folkies that covers the range from traditional to contemporary to original songs. If you like sea shanties sung by 'manly men,' check out 'Roll the Old Chariot,' a traditional tune that finds authentic treatment by the band. For that 60s folk sound, try 'Follow That Light,' 'Rollin' Down That Highway,' and 'Time and Place.' The songs are reminiscent of the New Christy Minstrels with a little bit of The Kingston Trio thrown in for good measure. Good sing-along music! If ballads powered by a baritone voice appeal to you, check out 'Irish Immigrant Soldier' and the medley of 'Wayfaring Stranger/Motherless Child.' The former is an original historical ballad; the latter is a new variation on a familiar theme. Irish/English/Canadian tunes? If you like Gaelic Storm and other Celtic-flavored bands, you'll be drawn to 'Bright Green Eyes,' 'The Leaving of Liverpool,' and 'Will Ye Come Away.' These are tunes that will carry you away as the lyrics are married to beautiful melodies. The lovely ballad, 'Bright Green Eyes,' is a gentle tune that evokes the longing for ol' Erin. There's something for everybody on this CD. Check it out!
