Sarstedt, Peter: England's Lane

If you have heard of Peter Sarstedt it is more than likely via his 1960's hit "Where Do You Go To (My Lovely)". However, Sarstedt has quite an extensive discography even though he had slowed down somewhat in the '80s and '90s. England's Lane was originally recorded in 1997 but has now been given a nice treatment from Angel Air Records, something the label does very well.

On a sadder note Sarstedt had to retire from music in 2010 because of failing health so it would seem England's Lane will serve as his final release.

After listening to England's Lane it is easy to see why Angel Air decided to bring this album out of the vaults. It is a fine album of folksy rock and pop, very nicely recorded with excellent musicianship and Sarstedt's silky smooth vocals. The title track begins the disc featuring soulful harmonica and bluesy/folky guitar. Other highlights include; the ultra-catchy folk pop gem that is "British Museum", the poignant beautiful folk of "Horses", the Latin tinged acoustic guitar in "You Crazy Fool" and the gorgeous accordion melody in "Biarritz", another tune in the folk tradition.

When I want something a little lighter and poignant in a folkier vein I will certainly reach for England's Lane again. I suggest you do the same.
