I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, The Way That I Wish It Was, by Maggie Fraser and it's classic roots music at it's best. Opening with Your Ghost, Maggie Fraser on vocal and acoustic creates a special environment, joined by Rich Roxborough on keys and Alec Fraser on backing vocals, Guitars and Circus bass. Pure country, The Cornfield is a real nice track with Maggie paired with Colleen Hodgson on vocal, and authentic fiddle and pedal steel by Chris Bartos and Alec Fraser on bass, drums and acoustic guitar. Very cool. Our Little Canoe is a really nice track with European influenced Mandolin and bodhran by James McKie and Fraser on Bass and keys. Excellent! Title track, The Way That I Wish It Was, has classic country bones, a solid melody and with Denis Keldie on organ and accordion, and Fraser on bass and guitar, another solid contribution. Wrapping the release is Song For Susan, a sold ballad featuring Maggie on vocal, Bartos on violin and moog bass and Alec on acoustic guitar. This is not your regular album and I think it stands tall in feel and realism.
