Hurray For The Riff Raff - Best New Track
Singer-songwriter Ryley Walker plays guitar (a Guild D-35) like Bert Jansch and sings like Tim Buckley. Still only in his mid-twenties, he’s going to be a major figure, as the rave reviews for his second album, ‘Primrose Green’ attest. For this unmissable date, Walker is joined by the revered double-bassist Danny Thompson, who of course performed with both Bert Jansch (in Pentangle) and Tim Buckley, as well as with Nick Drake, John Martyn and many more, helping to create the lyrical, folk-jazz style that so influenced Ryley Walker close to half a century later. As duos go, it’s a unique marriage made in heaven.
