3 stars This is a nice surprise, enclosed with Classic Rock Presents Prog # 16. Unfortunate for those of you not living in the UK, you have to pay some $$ for this compilation album.

Judy Dyble looks like a lovely old lady. She is also listed in the Prog Folk genre. So some acoustic guitars backing up her voice, then........?

Wrong !

This is anything but acoustic guitar & a wonderful female vocals type of music. Judy Dyble has a very modern sound backing up her wonderful voice. Acoustic guitars ? There are some, but they are a part of soundscape counting tangents, various acoustic instruments, woodwinds, bass and various percussions.

The music is based on prog folk, yes. But add a lot of eclectic prog too. Not to mention symphonic prog and some world music. Her take on Pink Floyd's standard See Emily Play is both great and very temporary.

In short, Judy Dyble does not live in the 1970s and resting on her very impressive work with Fairport Convention and others. She has both her legs in 2010-11 and she is also looking forward to 2012, 2013......... The two long songs at the end also more than justifies her inclusion in ProgArchives. Is it just me or does others also hear a lot of Soft Machine aka Fifth in the last track on this sampler; Harpsong ? Good Lord !!! Harpsong is a good nineteen minutes long workout.

The quality is good throughout and bordering to great at times. Judy Dyble may have old age pensioneer buspass. But she still sounds like a youngster and she still has a lot to offer.
