"I would like to recommend the above tape created by.... Marc Lines. It's a clever blend of 'Robin of Sherwood' dialogue and Clannad tracks, expertly woven together to compliment each other. Also included is 'The Witch's Promise' by All About Eve coupled with Lilith's bewitching words.... The tape is a must for all fans.
well chosen pieces effectively conjure up the magical, mystical 'Robin
of Sherwood' atmosphere and will sweep you off to that 'Robin of Sherwood'
parallel universe we all know and love so well! It's ideal for those times
when you need a 'Robin of Sherwood' fix but aren't in the mood for a video.
Lie back, turn the lights off.... and listen to the immortal phrases coupled
with the haunting melodies."
"When you have too much to do around the house to sit and watch many hours of 'Robin of Sherwood' videos, the 'Sounds of Sherwood' cassettes or CDs are the perfect alternative. All the emotion, humour, magic and drama of the series has been condensed and captured on these cassettes/CDs and blended with wonderfully atmospheric music from All About Eve and Iona. From Robin and Much's first encounter with Sir Guy of Gisburne in the forest in 'Robin and the Sorceror', through to Robin and Marion's tearful farewell on the Tor in 'The Greatest Enemy'. Then from the third season, the rantings of King John through to the shocking confession of Margaret of Gisburne, and Marion's renunciation of Robin for the nunnery at the end of 'Time of the Wolf'. Nothing's Forgotten.....
has put a lot of care and imagination into these recordings, and I thoroughly
recommend them to all those who love 'Robin of Sherwood'".
Scarlet Blood captures all the facets of Will Scarlet's wonderfully
complex character, as created by Richard Carpenter and performed by Ray
Winstone. From his first explanation to Robin in the dungeon of Nottingham
Castle of why he's "scarlet now", through his menacing
of Abbot Hugo ("Which is your favourite ear?") and his
absolute terror of the enemy he cannot fight (leprosy), to his proclamation
of loyalty to his companions, Will makes us laugh, and cry. Marc has cleverly
counterpointed the dialogue from the series with some poignant songs from
All About Eve which fit the action perfectly: 'Are You Lonely?',
'Scarlet' and 'She Moves Through The Fair'. A wonderful CD which reminds
us all why we love Scarlet so much....
