Babes in the Wood is Mary Black’s finest, most consistently pleasing album. There is no filler here, and her song selection, culled from new songwriters such as Noel Brazil and classic folkies such as Richard Thompson, is impeccable. The acoustic arrangements (including guitar, piano, mandolin, Dobro and accordion) are carried out by her longtime backing musicians, although the music has a decidedly more pop than Celtic flavor on this album.
