SHIRLEY & DOLLY COLLINS ~ For As Many as Will FLED 3019

A reissue on CD for SHIRLEY & DOLLY COLLINS’ For As Many As Will first released in 1978. The album contains some of the sisters’ finest recorded work together –
uniting Dolly Collins fine arranging skills with the haunting beauty of Shirley’s voice.

The Collins sisters were brought up on the Sussex coast with a strong love and understanding for English traditional song. Through a remarkable series of landmark recordings during the 1960s and ’70s they helped define the possibilities of the English folksong revival. ‘For As Many As Will’, their classic final recording includes a stunning reading of Richard Thompson’s ‘Never Again’, alongside fine traditional material like ‘Lord Allenwater’, ‘Gilderoy’, ‘The Moon Shines Bright’ and a medley from John Gay’s ‘The Beggar’s Opera’.
