REG MEUROSS – The Dreamed And The Drowned (Own Label)

I must have been in a stupor (not drunk…just a stupor) for not having been more aware of Reg Meuross most of my ‘folk’ music life. Here a collection of unreleased material between 2006-2011 illustrates just how vivid a picture he can create with the aid of a pen. If Mr Meuross was an Olympic competitor he’d be awarded ‘gold’ as his brilliantly structured stories…many of which are based on real events from history…really make you think. The opening title track ably demonstrates this relating the harrowing tale of a pregnant girl banished to the moors with her name besmirched by a community who should have known better. It isn’t just the story that would have done justice to anything written by Catherine Cookson but the plaintive way Reg breathes life into the characters captured so dramatically that by its very nature appears at times to be almost voyeuristic. There isn’t a duff track on the entire album and as ever his choice of musicians including Barney Morse-Brown, Sarah Allen and Roy Dodds contribute a touch of class to a glittering CD brimming with musical gems if you’ll excuse the cliché. Masterfully crafted lyrics of this calibre I’m pleased to report are abundant in the ‘folk’ world…I’m thinking Jez Lowe, Steve Tilston and Ralph McTell etc…and Reg should feel justifiably proud to be part of such an exclusive echelon. A recording of this quality should be heard (and enjoyed) by millions but if you really don’t want to miss out get in quick because there are only 1,000 signed and numbered copies being pressed – miss purchasing a copy at your peril.
