Martin Simpson: "True Stories"

Since neither Jackie Oates nor The Unthanks won any of the BBC Folk Awards 2010, I just had to check out some of the others. One of them, Martin Simpson, won a prize for best traditional track with "Sir Patrick Spens" on"True Stories".
The whole album sure is great, living up to it´s title "True Stories", Martin Simpson being a good story teller. The guitar playing is fantastic too, and Danny Thompson is the bass man on several tracks.
We also get a nice version of the classic " Stagolee", better known as Stagger Lee.
I see no reason not to get this album.
