The week of Alfie Boe’s new album release has arrived and there seems no better time to look at another set of Six Sensational Songs, this time from Carole Naden. Carole’s first choice is:
Of course, Bring Him Home, ‘the’ song that we all associate with Alfie.
Another eternally popular song, and the winner of the Best Live Song poll for the past two years, Run.
Angie, from Storyteller. This beautiful cover of the Rolling Stones is making it’s first appearance in six sensational songs.
Dimming of the Day, first heard with Emilia Mitiku on the Storyteller tour but recorded for Trust with Shawn Colvin.
Another new song for our list of sensational songs, this is Wagon Wheel from Cardiff 2017, the first time we heard Wagon Wheel and the second time we saw Alfie play guitar. The last time was five years on the Storyteller tour!
Carole’s sixth choice is Islands in the Stream, another song that debuted at Alfie’s summer concerts this year but I couldn’t find a video with just that, so you get a freebie this time around!
I say this every time sensational songs is published but the depth and breadth of Alfie’s repertoire is such that we have added another three new songs to the Six Sensational Songs playlist! Bring on the next tour!
