3.0 out of 5 stars Blues Run the Game, 1 Jun 2014
Jackson C Frank came from the USA to the London of the 1960s and fell in with Janscch, Renbourne, and their associates. He made this one disc, produced by Paul Simon, gave up and went back to the USA where he fell into decline, lived on the street, and was murdered. Blues Run The Game, the single, is a classic. Laura Marling has just made a beguiing version - it's on Youtube. By Frank it's a great single but the rest of the disc doesn't measure up to it.

Ashley Hiutchings came from Fairport Convention and married Shirley Collins on his way to building up an impressive discography. I love this - though it's not Fairport or electric in any way, so if that's what you want, you won't. It consists of scraps and passages from the history of folk music (I've just read Rob Young's Electric Eden so feel fairly expert at the moment. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Electric-Eden-Unearthing-Britains-Visionary/dp/0571237533). Book and disc - Rattlebone and Ploughjack - strongly recommended.

I first found the Bleys and Steve Swallow through Jimmy Giuffre back in 1965 or so, and I have built up quite an extensive collection of their discs over the years. I'm very happy with this addition to it. Recommended.
