Reseña de álbum

Veteran Scottish folksinger Archie Fisher signed to American folk label Red House Records in the mid-'90s, but it took him until 2008 to complete and release Windward Away. The album is a collection of ballads in which Fisher plays gentle, circular fingerpicking patterns on his acoustic guitar, over which he sings in a soothing low tenor somewhat reminiscent of Roger Whitaker and Gordon Lightfoot.

He adds eight of them to the 11 new recordings for an appendix he calls "The Missing Master" (tracks 12-19). As well as sounding considerably younger on the tracks, he also provides more musical variety with folk-pop arrangements of traditional songs and some originals that turned up on later albums. It was a good idea to include this material with the formal Windward Away tracks, since it livens things up, at least a little.
