Booze Hoister Folk Group “The More You Booze, The Double You See” 1978 Dutch Private Folk
Their second and final album sensibly prioritises songs over instrumentals, with the talented Ina van Beek taking all the lead vocals, and includes a few stunning numbers with a dreamy, symphonic, almost neoclassical feel. Both the traditional material and original compositions are interpreted superbly, so despite a couple of more throwaway numbers this is decidedly the better and more satisfying of their two releases………………….
