shirley collins

Little bit of a treat here, you all know that there’s a Shirley Collins album about to land shortly, ‘lodestar’ be its name, there’s a limited vinyl version which comes autographed if bought direct from the label. But enough of that for here’s the latest sneak preview, the delightfully jaunty and cosy toed campfire warmer ‘pretty polly’ all exquisitely toned in a deep south folk blues vintage telling the tale of Polly following her true love the Captain by signing up to the American army. The track comes accompanied by a most distractingly wonderful video the making of which, by a small village or so it seems, can be seen via a short film that’s been cobbled together and released showing the time, effort and labour poured forth by this creative army of artists, I wonder if they do special rates for kitchens….ah well. Incidentally, download codes would be real nice by the way Domino folk….
