As much as I love the style of Bruton and KPM, there is something about De Wolfe records that transcend the norm. Reg Tilsley indulges in many moods and styles throughout the course of these 16 tracks, easily dancing between dramatic, playful and contemplative. The musicians involved do an excellent job of bringing the songs alive and despite the many instruments being used the sound remains uncluttered and cohesive. It's hard to pick specific songs that stand out because the quality is fairly uniform from start to finish. It's a super library listen.
