“nearly flawless: singing is not flashy, but genuinely well executed … playing is solid and infectious … songs are well selected and intelligently ordered - as if it could have been plucked from a tavern 350 years ago .... Throughout, there is an infectious joy expressed in the four-part harmonies. There are songs here that make the listener want to jump and dance a merry jig” - MusicWeb
"City Waites give us a taste of the broadside ballad culture which pervaded the Restoration years ... and instrumental numbers from well-known anthologies like Playford's Dancing Master … whilst other numbers have been dredged up straight from the 17th-century gutter" - Gramophone
