Have ten years really passed since Marry Waterson and Oliver Knight released their sublime duet debut, The Days That Shaped Me? Back in April 2011, I recall reviewing the original release, for Folk Radio UK: “Richly layered, its poetic atmosphere, haunting melodies and understated accompaniment colour the album with an entirely timeless quality”. This view still stands of the original release, but what of the re-issue? Well, it’s hard to imagine that Waterson and Knight could improve on the heartfelt empathy of the original, but the talented duo should never be underestimated. The original release is still as fresh as it was a decade ago, and with the addition of new tracks, the 10th-anniversary release is a striking, and engrossing listen.
