Fond Desire Farewell

Fond Desire Farewell


I’ve been listening to Fond Desire Farewell and am just enveloped by it. So impeccably sung, played, produced, recorded…what a pleasure”                         -Nancy C., Listener

“…this is my kind of record. Beautifully sung and superbly produced.”    -Singer Linda Thompson

Named “CD of the Week” by Rich Warren, Host of WFMT’s “The Midnight Special”

A great selection of songs, sensitively sung, with brilliant production work by DM. A gem of a CD.” -Simon Nicol, Fairport Convention

2009 | Falling Mountain Music

Fond Desire Farewell was arranged and produced by Dave Mattacks, who is best known for his work with the English folk-rock band Fairport Convention. Built on a theme of transformation through devastation, Fond Desire Farewell contains contemporary songs written by Richard Thompson, Bill Caddick, Nic Jones, Steve Tilston, and Ralph Stanley. Ray Davies’s “Alcohol” has become a favorite among listeners as has Chris Moore’s “Wall of Stone”. The traditional songs in this recording reflect Debra’s extensive research of North American and British Isles ballad collections. Fond Desire Farewell was named “CD of the Week” by Rich Warren, host of WFMT’s “The Midnight Special”. Singer Linda Thompson said “…this is my kind of record. Beautifully sung and superbly produced.”
