Lal Waterson & Oliver Knight: A Bed Of Roses

Completed after Lal Waterson's Death, "A Bed Of Roses" is a almost as good as "Once In A Blue Moon" (which I consider a true masterpiece), and I think we could never ever thank her own son Oliver for completing this beautiful output, this worth work.
Lal's songs are haunting me sweetly these days, I find myself humming them wherever I go, specially (from this LP) Memories and Foolish One. Actually what really happens is this: I take my guitar, strum some chord and I try to sing some Lal-Waterson like melody, but with no success at all. This woman and her voice has been an inspiration to me for quite some time now, I hope it will be to you too. If so, go and find (and wishfully buy) more.

Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful music with us. It is very much appreciated. Lal was always rather mysterious and dark to me: I absolutely love her music and miss her greatly.
Thanks again!

Likewise, I really appreciate getting to hear this. I've always heard about Lal Waterson but never really had the chance to hear any. Thank you. W.

Lal's best offering, without a doubt.
