Sony Nashville UK Sampler
Sony Nashville UK Sampler

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice Sampler, 22 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a FREE sampler never sure what to expect, but overall I felt it was a good balance of artists and music and worth 4* for free, probably 3* if paid for.
It has certainly helped to widen the circle of artists I will look at in the future.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant like stepping back in time to the best of New Orleans, 4 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fooler's Gold (Audio CD)
I bought this on a recommendation, in the last 2 weeks it has hardly left the CD player.
I love the mix of old time standards and new pieces which blend seamlessly together.
Meschiya has a good voice but the backing band are excellent.
I'm looking at the back catalogue for my next purchase

1.0 out of 5 stars Very poor and boring, 4 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fanfare (Audio CD)
Having enjoyed his previous CD Gentle Spirit and reading some reviews I bought this.
The CD is packaged poorly, the track numbering is incorrect and without the aid of a magnifying glass useless.
That was the good bit the music is just plain boring and repetitive, ideas don't develop and there is not one track that is memorable.
Do you want to buy a copy ?

This review is from: Pokey Lafarge (Audio CD)
Heard about this group a while back, so put one in my wish list. Only just got round to buying should have done so months ago.
Great for summer evening barbeques etc. Although all relatively new songs the feel of old New Orleans comes out.

This was bought on the strength of a recommendation & a You Tube clip.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely Tribute CD, 1 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you like the work of Dave Alvin and similar you will like this.
Chris Gaffney was a long time band member with DA, and one of the founder Guilty Men, on his death DA disbanded the band, next appearing with the Guilty Women.
The tracks show the lighter more humerous side that Chris brought to the genre.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 1 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Red Sky July (Audio CD)
I read good reviews and thought it should be right up my street. The harmonies are good but overall it is a bit "too Twee" and bland. Promised more than it delivered.
