Fresh-faced charm pervades this astutely curated disc. Far from a marriage of convenience, Long-standing duo partners Lewis and Osborne complement each other perfectly. In short, this is pure enjoyment from start to finish.
Grainger emerges as far more than pretty, cosy or genteel; more a case of romantic, folksy, dangerous, exultant, tumultuous and, yes, sentimental. Glorious. It’s difficult to imagine any competition for this uniquely cornucopiac edition.
