Bob Fox’s latest album “Dreams Never Leave You” is like an old friend. “The Road to the North” welcomes you in and leads very nicely into “The White Cockade”. The album is very well constructed and every track seems to fit well with the next, like Ewan MacColl’s “Champion at Keeping them Rolling” which features some marvelous flute playing by Norman Holmes. The two songs that follow are about the river Tyne in Newcastle, UK: the first, a love song, and the second, Jimmy Nail’s “Big River”. Bob also covers Jez Lowe’s touching tale “Greek Lightning”, about a dream that lets you down which features some inspired fiddle playing by Ric Sanders. Another highlight is Ralph McTell’s “From Claire to Here”, a simply beautiful version. Bob offers some great tips on the fairer sex in “Take Her in Your Arms” and the last track “The Galway Shawl” completes this collection of carefully chosen tracks. The Folkmaster – 17-May-2001
folkmaster 2014 – The above video is from a folking live event we run back in October 2006 when Bob was joined by his old sparing partner Billy Mitchell. “The Rambling Rover” (also on the album) was performed as the final encore and conjures up the spirit of what made our folking live events and the artists we had at them so memorable…
