5.0 out of 5 stars Do you know of Kansas Joe?, 24 Feb 2014

Well it's time that you did .... great blues by a fine bluesman that you should download and listen to.

Led Zeppelin vocalist Robert Plant took his and Memphis Minnie's recording of "When the Levee Breaks," which was in his personal collection, and presented it to guitarist Jimmy Page, who revamped it and slightly altered it lyrically, and helped record it on Led Zeppelin's 1971 album, Led Zeppelin IV.

McCoy's songs have also been covered by Bob Dylan, John Mellencamp, The Ink Spots, Ella Fitzgerald, Jo Ann Kelly, Cleo Laine and A Perfect Circle.

This review is from: Skeletons [DVD] (DVD)
If you only buy one DVD of a British film buy Skeletons.

Skeletons is a darkly comic debut from Nick Whitfield with lineage through Ealing and European schools of film making.

The central characters Davis and Bennett are agents of Veridical and visit people's homes to metaphorically clean out skeletons from their closets; hidden and often dirty secrets which people are too weak to disclose themselves, and indeed the services offered by Veridical are perceived by the clients as a form of fanciful post-modernist therapy, and they do not truly believe that Davis and Bennett can discover their secrets.

The duo is played with both Pinter-esque menace and Sam Beckett comedy by Andrew Buckley and Ed Gaughan.

The film is a dark comedy with early laugh-out-loud scenes, but ultimately delivers a compelling message about loss and memory.

Unmistakeably English in its charming eccentricity, there are traces of great European films such as Delicatessen in its construction.

Skeletons is a gem of English independent cinema that fully deserves its accolades, and the award of the Michael Powell award for Best New British Feature Film at the Edinburgh Film Festival.
