Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Issued 26 September 2006, this huge haul makes available extremely rare LPs and singles by one of Britain's great-unsung guitar/harmonica players - Anthony "Duster" Bennett. The blues-mad 22 year-old from Wales was pointed in the direction of the UK's Blue Horizon label in early 1968 by none other than Fleetwood Mac's PETER GREEN. Greeney was on the money of course - and here's the rocking proof. 2CDs, 44 Tracks, 3 full albums, 9 non-album singles tracks and 1 previously unreleased cut - ouch! There's a lot on here - so let's break it down...

Disc 1 (76:13 minutes):
Track 1 is "Hard To Resist", an aborted 1st UK 7" single recorded 15 May 1968, previously unreleased until now
Tracks 2 and 3 are "It's A Man Down There" and "Things Are Changing", non-album A & B of the 1968 UK 7" single on Blue Horizon 57-3141
Tracks 4 to 15 are the album "Smiling Like I'm Happy" issued late August 1968 on Blue Horizon S 7-63208 in the UK and BH 4326 in the USA
Tracks 16 and 17 are "Raining In My Heart" and "Jumpin' For Joy", non-album A & B of the 17 January 1969 UK 7" single on Blue Horizon 57-3148
Tracks 18 to 22 are Side 1 of the LIVE album "Bright Lights..." issued 1969 on Blue Horizon S 7-63221 in the UK and BH 3256 in the USA
(Tracks 18 to 22 on Disc 1 and 1 to 6 on Disc 2 credited to DUSTER BENNETT and HIS HOUSE BAND - which is most of FLEETWOOD MAC)

Disc 2 (78:58 minutes):
Tracks 1 to 6 are Side 2 of the LIVE album "Bright Lights...

I was overjoyed when I first heard, from my good friend Peter Moody (a man who has achieved GREAT things for Duster Bennett's musical legacy, as the result of CD issues and Duster biography publication) about the plans to reissue this music.

Like many people, including Blue Horizon label boss/producer Mike Vernon and Duster Bennett himself, I was disappointed by the '12db's' album and I didn't buy a copy. The first two albums and the singles are a different story - this is vital, powerful stuff. 'Smiling Like I'm Happy' was an absolutely brilliant debut album which wisely utilised Fleetwood Mac (then at their peak as a blues band) on several tracks.

The second album 'Bright Lights...' was recorded at one of Duster's favourite venues, (and he was THE favourite there) the Gin Mill Club in Godalming, Surrey. It is a masterpiece. All of Duster's infectious, kinetic energy and joyous enthusiam is preserved intact for our continued listening pleasure.

He was a rare man and a unique talent. For years I thought that Peter Green had influenced him. Well, he did - but Duster influenced him to the same extent or more. Buy this and discover the best work of a great musician.

I lived throught the sixties music, The Kinks, Stones Beatles etc. It was my loss that it has taken until 2009 to find the music of Tony Duster Bennett. How he can play so many instruments and sing so well is beyond me. If you want to broaden you horizons and try something a little bit different for a very reasonable price then this is for you. Enjoy

I know I've written a review of *I Choose To Sing The Blues* elsewhere, but I've just started picking up a lot of DB's stuff on CD after having had his albums when they came out nearly 40 yrs ago, and bloody hell, in these times of digitised, airbrushed, stylised, overwrought scavengings of the worn out seam that is rock music, there's something joyously infectious about a lot of this.

Rough and ready (in the best back-yard sense), genuine and heartfelt. Yes, a couple of the twelve bars plod a bit (Things Are Changing), there is some dodgy time keeping at times,(Hill St. Rag is so ramshackle and bonkers it just makes me grin with pleasure) and they've all been retrieved from long stored old reel to reels, so the sound is appropriately unpolished, but there's a lot of just sheer simple joy and enthusiasm on here that's a pleasure to hear. Not to mention some fab harmonica playing (My Lucky Day, Got A Tongue In Your Head, Shady Little Baby, the rocking Worried Mind etc.......) and some lovely blues song-writing.......(Jumpin' At Shadows, I'm Going To Wind Up Ending Up Or I'm Going To End Up Winding Up With You).

Anyway, if you think that less can often mean more, or if you once owned a vinyl copy of Smilin' Like I'm Happy, then welcome home.

I remember seeing Duster Bennett at the London College of Printing at the Elephant and Castle back in 1968, he was brilliant. These two CDs are pretty good too. Despite the fact that Duster doesn't always sing in tune or play in time, he was a very accomplished musician and the shear exuberance of his playing is a joy to listen to. There are a couple of duff tracks, but overall it's well worth the money.Buy it.

He's good. When he ain't I'd still rather listen to him than anything by JZ or his missus or Lady Gaga.
