Kathryn Williams & Neill MacColl - Two download album

Two is Kathryn Williams 7th studio album, released by CAW Records on 3 March 2008. The album is a collaboration with Neill MacColl. The pair met at the Daughters of Albion concert at the Barbican in 2005 where she performed "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face", which was written by Neill MacColl's father, Ewan MacColl. They met up in May 2007 to write and record 21 songs for the album in six days.

Producer – Kathryn Williams, Neill MacColl. Recorded By – Darren Hall (tracks: 9). Trumpet, Flugelhorn – Graham Hardy. Vocals, Guitar, Dulcimer, Autoharp – Neill MacColl. Vocals, Guitar, Organ, Harmonium, Mellotron – Kathryn Williams. Written-By – Kathryn Williams (tracks: 1, 3 to 13), Neill MacColl (tracks: 3, 4, 6 to 13), Tom Waits (tracks: 2). Notes. The songs were recorded in some very well creosoted sheds in Cambridgeshire by Steve Stuart, then Kathryn recorded some more bits like horns and violin in her garage and Neill recorded things like autoharp in his basement. The strings on "Shoulders" were recorded by Darren Hall at Blast Studios, Newcastle.

After all, she is a much-praised one-time Mercury nominee and he is the son of Ewan MacColl and Peggy Seeger. Now, with help from added bass, drums and carefully used strings, and with production work by that great veteran Phill Brown (the man who has helped everyone from the Rolling Stones to Rokia Traoré), they have recorded a gentle, intimate album filled with breathy and exquisite songs, which would be a major triumph if only there was just a little more variety in.

When the Mercury-nominated Williams joins forces with Ewan MacColl and Peggy Seeger's son Neill, you'd expect folk sparks to fl. Because, unusually, 'Two' is a completely upside-down record. Opener "6am Corner" is perfectly pleasant, but a perfunctory duet of Tom Waits' "Innocent When You Dream" is followed by a lull in which MacColl all but disappears and Williams, for the first time, appears to be going through the motion. Worry not, though, from track seven on, 'Two' is everything you would want it to be: a magical meeting of intuitive musical minds. More about Music Parlophone Records Rock Singers Tom Waits.
