The entire proceeds from this EP are going to aid YMCA Germany's 'Children Of Chernobyl' appeal and excellent it is too. Jonathan Day and Sammy Horner and various members of their bands the Electrics and Eye Of The Storm make music which resonates with the passion of utter conviction. The opening track "Come Together" is ironically, despite lusty singing from Jonathan in three different languages (English, Russian and German) the weakest, but once we get into the Celtic stomper "Ceol Na Tschernobyl" all reservations are swept aside. There's also some fine fiddle from Jean Pierre Rudolph on the Sammy Horner-led "Glen A John Air". Support an important project while listening to great music.
