Product Description


The first question I had to ask myself when considering this book is: is it possible to simplify the complex arrangements of the 22-legged groove machine that is Bellowhead, down to something that somebody with my rudimentary guitar skills can play? After just about getting to grips with 'New York Girls' I can say the answer is a resounding YES. Bellowhead's first songbook includes crowd-pleasers like the aforementioned 'New York Girls', 'London Town' and 'Sloe Gin', alongside less obvious ones, such as'10,000 Miles Away' and 'Parson's Farewell'. All in all there are fifteen songs and tunes arranged for piano, voice and guitar chords. Those with greater skill can make the most of the notation, whilst the barely capable (like myself) can strum along and pretend you're part of Britain's finest live act. The book has a potted history from Paul Sartin by way of introduction, as well as pen pictures of each of the band members that displays a range of talent and experience that will make all wannabe folkies green with envy. Even better is each song or tune has an introduction detailing its history and provenance, the most pithy of which is for 'Unclothed Nocturnal Manuscript Crisis': 'Written by Benji in the Welsh Borders in the late 1990s, the title alone contains a comprehensive account of the tune's inception'. Admittedly you're not likely to sit down and read this cover to cover, but that's not what it's for. If you're like me, however, you can while away your time trying to master a tune and in so doing get a glimpse behind the curtain and get some sense of the group's genius. --Jonathan Roscoe. Shire Folk Magazine, July 2014

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic band 6 May 2014
Verified Purchase
This book is perfect for any Bellowhead fans or anyone who loves folk music. This is a compilation of Bellowhead's greatest songs and pieces. I've been a fan of Bellowhead since 2007, since then I've enjoyed them more, with each new album, and am seeing them for the fourth time in November. Fantastic band, especially when playing live. Would recommend it to anyone, even if it's not your type of music, watch them live and see how good they are
