Product Description

Bob Harris is a legend. Pure and simple. he has one of the most recognisable voices on National radio and his 'Bob Harris Presents...' shows are still the 'Holy Grail' of radio shows for acts old and new. Bob has been described as the 'John Peel' of country music, and his unbridled passion and commitment to the genre (and it's many sub-genres) has always meant that Bob is the first name on any musicians lips when it comes to time to promote their new work. His tireless promotion of new acts is second to none. Other than the late, great John Peel, there aren't many people that lay claim to breaking as many bands through to the mainstream consciousness as Bob Harris. From the now legendary 'Whistle Test' TV shows through to his equally revered radio shows, when Bob gives his support to an artist, the public listen. Which is where the new 'Bob Harris Presents...' comes in. Alongside the household names, such as John Prine, Billy Joe Shaver and Alison Krauss there are incredible tracks from new artists that Bob has been championing on his show. Whether it's the New Orleans drawl of Grayson Capps, or the plaintive Alana Levandoski, the lyrical genius of Todd Snider, this album captures the essence of the Americana genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent sampler 19 Dec 2008
By Gizmophobic VINE VOICE
I don't listen to much music on the radio so couldn't tell you if this is representative of the radio 2 show but it is an extremely useful sampler and has opened up quite a few new leads for me. In particular the tracks by Kathleen Edwards, Ray Wylie Hubbard, James McMurtry, Patty Griffen and Hayes Caryll have all led to top grade puchases-(see other reviews)-on the evidence of this I also intend to follow up Slaid Cleaves, Chris Knight, Eve Sellis and Alana Levandowski. That only leaves about half a dozen artists and most of these are in the maybe category. If you like your country with tunes but low on corn this is a good place to start exploring.

I really enjoyed listening to this CD which was bought on the strength of Bob's Radio 2 programme. It hasn't been taken out of the player yet and it's 10 days and counting...!

Some really good tracks on this cd especially "saved by love". But some other tracks didn't really grab me. I won't be recommending it to others
