Product Description

British folk sing-songwriter Steve Ashley returns with an inspirational set of new songs infused with sharp wit and dark humour in Another Day.

In a highly-personal take on the socio-political state of Britain, he tackles the UK press (“The Paper Song”), the BBC (“One For The Playlist”), the monitors at GCHQ, and, as he relates: ‘the welfare-cutting governments that have impoverished the lives of so many’.

With some big, radical songs with stirring melodies and fine English poetry, this is bracing fayre, as Ashley elsewhere celebrates the legacies of lost heroes, the fight to save the NHS (“The Land of Love”), and in “The Months Go Round” the beauty of the ever-turning seasons that, back in 1974, informed his landmark debut, Stroll On.

A master of melody and verse, Ashley sets out a very personal vision in Another Day …

    :

    Almost 50 years since his debut Stroll On (a wonderful reissue by Market Square some years back) this is another fantastic record from Ashley. It may not have the arrangements nor the backing of Fairport and others that the debut did but the songs and the voice are still there. His social observation, always a facet of Ashley's work, has sharpened over the years and is even less forgiving. But then these are worrying times the world over. Great songs here tackling the monster that news media has become, the travails of the health services, and the potential of the far left to provide a much needed corrective to what's happening in the US, the UK, France and elsewhere are all handled with dry wit and a real flair for wordage. It's not all about politics: there are songs closer to our shared and often frail human condition, too. Stand outs are many on this CD, but the 'Newspaper Song' is hilarious while emotional closer' Another Shore' is very affecting. I hope he makes Another Day!
