Eleanor McEvoy “Early Hours”LP MOSV101


 Produced by Eleanor McEvoy and Brian Connor

1/2 Speed Mastered by Miles Showell at Metropolis Mastering, London.

LP pressed on 180g vinyl.

Irish singer-songwriter Eleanor McEvoy has a distinguished pedigree, having written the renowned and oft-anthologised 'Only A Woman's Heart'. Her last recording YOLA also found success as a much-admired stereo hybrid SACD. EARLY HOURS demonstrates once again the gorgeous naturalistic recording style of YOLA, while upping the game in that is adds both the choice of a multi-channel version (mostly of an ambient soundfield nature but with some centre channel use for isolated or phantom-supported lead vocal, and some surround excursions for supporting instruments and vocals), and varies instrumental options by adding Calum MacColl (of the MacColl clan, and Brian Kennedy/Ronan Keating sideman fame) to the already excellent band. The album has been produced by McEvoy and her gifted pianist Brian Connor, and like its predecessor the sleeve proudly proclaims that it was recorded and mixed using analogue machines. The result is a wonderfully warm sound, faithfully reproduced with stunning realism in its DSD incarnation - particularly when conveying McEvoy's likeable Irish brogue.
While YOLA had co-writes with Lloyd Cole and Henry Priestman, the songs here are predominantly originals in an acoustic folk vein, although a languorous take on Chuck Berry's Memphis Tennessee puts an interesting new spin on an old tune, and Bert Jansch's Where Did My Life Go? is a particular highlight. McEvoys songs are predominantly set to sturmmed or picked acoustics and real piano, with occasionsal use of other keyboards, ttumpets and fiddle as adornments. Bass and drums are used sparignly but effectively where appropriate, with a full rock arragnement only appearing on the up tempo Days Roll By and charming AT The End Of The Day. Recommended to those in search of a tranquil listening experience.                                    HI FI World, May 2004
