"Dives And Lazarus is Bob's long-awaited second solo album (the first, an LP of beautifully abstract guitar instrumentals titled Eight Day Clock, appeared on this label in 1991). This time out he's applied his craft to a set of British and American folk songs, each of which he carefully dissects and then reassembles. Every song gets a unique treatment, from the violin drone of 'The Murder Of Maria Marten' to the fuzz organ & guitar stomp of 'I Am A Pilgrim' to the two versions of 'In Christ There Is No East Or West' (one forwards, one backwards!). In most cases, the versions here are the first radical departures for these standards since 'folkrock' first reared it's quickly-severed head in the '60's. As we've always known but so seldom get proof of: For those willing to dive deep into the muddy waters of the folk songs of the 20th century, these songs continue to offer an infinite realm of possibility."
