3.0 out of 5 stars jsp box set better value
It`s good to see any Delmore Brothers cds available,and this double cd set does cover 36 tracks,but i would suggest you check out the JSP 4cd box sets which offer much better value.There are 3 of them to choose from each one containing around 90 or so tracks and liner notes that detail The Delmore Brothers career.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great record of country harmonica playing with Wayne Raney and Lonnie Glosson, 30 April 2013

This review is from: Blues Stay Away From Me (Audio CD)
This may not be the best Delmore Brothers record but it is a great record of 'country' harmonica playing, featuring both Wayne Raney and Lonnie Glosson, with both of them playing together on some tracks! While this may be country music it is heavily influenced by the blues and Raney and Glosson were both clearly influenced by the black harmonica player Deford Bailey who had played on the Grand Ole Opry and while their playing isn't really original they are very good players with a real feel for the blues. Glosson and Raney both also feature as vocalists and both are also credited as song writers along with the Delmores. The tracks were recorded in the late 40s and early 50s and despite the listed artists (The Hallelujah Trio, Hank Dalton etc) the personnel is always the Delmore Brothers with Raney and Glosson, plus additional guitar and bass players. The tracks were recorded in a variety of locations including New York, Dallas, Memphis and Cincinnati and the sound is very good with the harmonicas mainly recorded acoustically but listen to "Trouble ain't nothing but the blues" where the harmonica is very echoey and slightly distorted, almost like Little Walter! This is a cracking record of wonderful harmonica playing (and also some nice hillbilly country guitar - listen to "Freight train boogie") anyone interested in harmonica playing should give it a listen - there isn't a bad track on it. Can white men play the blues? - these two guys definitely could...

(And they weren't the only white boys blowing blues harps, look out for recordings by amongst others Gwen Foster, Bill Cox, Henry Whitter, James Francum Braswell, Dave McCarn, Walter Parham and Ernest Stoneman.)
