Dave Rawlings is a neo-bluegrass practitioner who hangs out with Ryan Adams, Bright Eyes and Gillian Welch. He plays beautifully and writes a decent song, including a Ryan collaboration, To Be Young (Is To Be Sad Is To Be High). Happily, he has stepped out of semi-obscurity to deliver his own album, which includes a version of the aforementioned tune, plus some sweet and evocative extras.

You dont need an introduction to Dame Shirley Bassey, and you may know that producer David Arnold has helped the artiste to complete a record thats arch, emotional and not overly dramatic. Songs have been written by Rufus Wainwright, Neil Tennant, and Richard Hawley, but its the Manic Street Preachers who have presented her with The Girl From Tiger Bay, a soaring sense of place and intensity that fits so well.
