2020 Charity Shop Purchase 26 The Jellyman's Daughter - Dead Reckoning
The raison d'être of this blog is finally back! At the weekend I donned a mask and visited a couple of charity shops (those that were open) on Glasgow's Victoria Rd my first such excursion since pre lockdown March.
My first purchase was Dead Reckoning the 2018 second album by The Jellyman's Daughter on the Boat Duck label.
The are a folk duo from Edinburgh consisting of Emily Kelly on vocals, mandolin and acoustic guitar and Graham Cox on vocals,cello,mandolin, acoustic guitar, piano and e-bow acoustic guitar (no me neither).
The name rang a bell as one of my pals has seen them play a couple of times
I'm finding it easier to dip in and out of it rather than playing it in it's entirity. These two song in particular put me in mind of Tracey Thorn from Everything But the Girl's Idlewild album in places
Penned in silver ink on the inner sleeve is a dedication thanking Laurie for fangirling. Not that much of a fan girl to hang onto the album though.
