5.0 out of 5 stars Essential listening, 12 Jun. 2002
This review is from: Freight Train Boogie (Audio CD)
For far too long the Delmore Brothers were never accorded the recognition they deserved. Not quintessential hillbilly, blues or boogie, but an inimitable mixture of the three with superb close harmony added, this CD covers their recordings from 1946 to 1952. These seminal recordings work on 2 levels: if you're a student of contemporary music the first will show how much The Everly Brothers were influenced by the Delmore Brothers years later; later still "Rounder's Blues" lyrics were revised, the record retitled "Going Up County" and recorded by Canned Heat.
On the second level the tracks are simply superb listening - "Boogie Woogie Baby" and "Pan American Boogie" alone make the CD worth the money. A great purchase and yet another outstanding Ace CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Open the book at random, read and laugh., 6 Jun. 2002
This review is from: Cricket and All That (Hardcover)
This book is a great "bed-side" read. It's worth buying if only to learn that Lord Harris's justification in "The Cricketer" of refusing Walter Hammond a place in the Gloucestershire team for a year was titled "Effects of Bolshevism". Furthermore, if you need to establish 3 connections between Arthur Mailey and tripe this is essential reading...well played, Henry; superb stuff!!!
