    I received the new album today while lying sick at home. This music feels like medicine! Another grrrreat arrangement of songs and tunes! This album is a must – doesn´t matter if you´re sick or healthy!

    “Far Better Days” dropped through the letterbox yesterday and has been playing ever since. An excellent set of tracks from the Swedish-tinged “Twa Sisters” to the very Scots “Moss O Burreldale/Lady Mary Ann” it is a joy to listen to. The undoubted highlights are the superb “Son David” and the finely sung and emotion-charged “Wild geese”. It’s been a long time coming but certainly worth the wait!
