5.0 out of 5 stars regarding how good they were, 7 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I can't speak highly enough of this CD. I discovered it by accident, having heard one of the Boswell Sisters' recordings at the end of a TV series recently. At that point, I searched for them on Amazon. Until then, I only had the word of my late mother, many years ago, regarding how good they were. For anyone who loves the 1930s era of jazz and rhythm, this is a must. What talented ladies they were, and to say that each of these recordings is brilliant is an understatement.

This book was bought as a Christmas gift, and so I do not have a personal comment. However, I understand from the person for whom it was purchased that they were very pleased with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars ... aren't many songs by Gillian Welch that I don't like, to be honest, 6 Jan. 2015

There aren't many songs by Gillian Welch that I don't like, to be honest. She has such a simple, direct way of performing, which is very appealing.

3.0 out of 5 stars This isn't my favourite version of the song, 6 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This isn't my favourite version of the song. Obviously taken from a live performance, it doesn't appeal to me as much as the version which appears on "The Best of Bobby Darin", but still good - as he was.

I think A. J. Croce is a more interesting performer than his father, but that is just my opinion. I enjoyed listening to this track.

5.0 out of 5 stars she was better known latterly for her role as Betty the Barmaid ..., 21 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although a big name in her day, she was better known latterly for her role as Betty the Barmaid in ITV's Coronation Street. A lovely singer, she performs this track in what I think is a really clever interpretation of this familiar song.
