SKU PL Wednesday, May 23, Barry Dransfield The Lama Reviews : I should warn you right away that Barry Dransfield's rare solo LP from is one of a dozen or less albums worldwide that has a "special" significance for me.
LP can't readily explain the reasons for this except to say that the particular angle that Barry hits you from on these haunting, evocative songs is Alasdair Clayre - Adam & The Beasts (Vinyl exact same angle from which I am open to receive statements about man, nature and the universe.
On a purely objective, statistically verified level, something like Nick Drake's debut LP is perhaps a stronger testament from a similar position, but in the hi-fi room where the Lama rules, Barry comes out on top. This is an odd bird no matter how you approach it. B -- were allowed to die a swift death in the marketplace. You have to feel for the artists hit by this bonehead "hardball" decision, especially as the folk scene was about to peak rather than disintegrate.
In the case of Barry Dransfield he LP never again make anything that comes close to the superb control, delivery and emotional commitment Album) display here. It is his masterpiece, and the only thing in the Dransfield brothers' checkered catalog that comes close to the tag "masterpiece". Born out of an explicit ambition to further develop the semi-acoustic folk then popular in the Isles, Barry made several smart decisions when putting his solo debut together.
One was to listen attentively when friends were pitching songs for him to cover. Hence we are treated to a number of truly marvelous tunes not covered by many others. It also seems that there was an unusually clear understanding of his own strengths and weaknesses as a performer at play, meaning that not only does almost every song fit beautifully into the total puzzle of the LP, but several of them sound like they had been written directly for Barry -- which was not the case.
I bet that a good number of the lucky few that bought this LP when it came out figured most or all songs to be Dransfield originals, until they read the liner notes which reveal that just 1 of the 11 songs were written by the man himself.
So while the opening "The werewolf" sounds like a confession from the depths of Barry's own soul, it is in fact a cover of American folkie Michael Hurley, released some 6 years earlier. I would like to explain the remarkable mood this song creates, but I don't think I can. It's a beautiful melody, built on simple minor chord shifts from the fertile ground where trad and contemporary folk meet.
