Affairs of the heart

If you’re looking for something romantic to listen to, you could do a lot worse than invest in the wonderful new collection of love songs by the English guitarist and singer-songwriter, Ralph McTell.  The set is called Affairs of the Heart, and you can read more about it here

The CD set is officially released today, although my sneak preview copy arrived on Friday, and I couldn’t be more delighted with it.  The four CDs span some five decades and are beautifully presented, with track notes by comedian and fan Rory McGrath.  If you only know Ralph from “Streets of London”, then you may not be prepared for the range, depth and poignancy of the love songs collected here.  Ralph writes from the heart, whether his subject matter is one-night stands or love in old age.  Delightful.
