‘The Loving Time’ is an album of love songs all written or sung by Irish artists. Noel Brazil, a name known but seldom heard finally gets his chance to shine on ‘The Land of Love’ and ‘Farewell to The Bad Times’. Leslie Dowdall returns to the fray after a few years absence with the funky and reassuring ‘Wonderful Thing’.
Sinéad Lohan takes Dylan’s ‘To Ramona’ and gives a pensive reading to her own ‘You’re In My Love’. Kieran Goss’s ‘Reach Out (I’ll Be There)’ is an inspired move while retrieving some of Brian Kennedy’s back catalogue brings ‘Captured’ and ‘Forgiveness’ back into circulation.
The giant figure of Paul Brady inhabits ‘Deep In Your Heart’ and his immortal ‘Helpless Heart’. Both Frances and Mary Black round off a comprehensive collection of chimerical tunes. Choice material and faultless execution renders ‘The Loving Time’ a cut above the rest.
