My wife and I saw Joe in concert late last year in Cheltenham.The guy gives you a wonderful night of music and humour,he has one cracking band.You leave having been well entertained.I see many current as well as long established artistes throughout most years and I would say Joe is one of the very best.If anyone should have a BritAward for services to British music Joe should be(maybe along with Marty Wilde) the ones to get it.Anyway to this set,simply wonderful stuff throughout.Apart from the first few tracks of classic recordings most of the material here is newly recorded with his touring band including his daughter Sam,who surely has one of the best voices around.With guests that include Dave Edmunds and Jools Holland,this is one album that delivers from track one to track twenty,yes it has twenty tracks,great value.Great songs from a whole range of styles from pop,rock,folk,country and even rockabilly.Buy with absolute confidence from one of the greatest artistes this country has even produced.Great also to see this album selling so well and getting so much positive exposure.Thanks Joe you still reign supreme,and boy if you play or plan to play guitar this album is a benchmark of tasty and melodic playing.

Joe Brown is special.This cockney ragamuffin with a guitar has been around since Elvis ruled.He has seen the Beatles and Stones and everyone else come and go.
Its all here.Enery the 8th.Picture of you.Thats what love will do.All the old hits I grew up listening to plus his more recent work such as Malt and barley blues,See you in my dreams[which Joe sang at the george Harrison tribute show].
Joe has played with Eddie Cochran,Marty Wilde,Billy Fury.Its time to hear the mans own work on a very best album.This is it.

excellent cd, so much more than the light hearted rock music of the early days. I bought it for 1 track, I'l see you in my dreams, in memory of a lost son. But I have enjoyed every track especially the folksy blues music with help from Joe's son and daughter. Have listened to it over
and over, thanks.

An excellent disc containing many of the real favourites from years past. Well worth the cost.

'Joe brown' was allways a joy to watch with his cheeky smile, because of an old 'pal' of mine i did actually see this guy on stage in the early 60's.
In 1962 he topped a variety bill, the 'Beatles' were a suporting act, i regret this was not the show i saw.
He first charted back in 1960 with 'Darktown Strutters Ball' which charted at number '34' mind you back then you had to see a lot of
45's to even climb that high in the chart, completion was fierce, record sales were booming.
Before he cracked the Top 10 in 62' he did achieve a couple more lower order successes with 'What a Crazy World Were Living in'
(Chart '37' 1962) and 'Shine' (Chart '33' 1961) his big-break Chart-Wise was with 'Picture Of You' which peaked at number '2'
Of course 'Joe' recorded many numbers that many of us remember him by, that didn't chart. like 'I'm Henery the Eighth I Am' and
'A Lay-about's Lament' among them (the latter not included on this release)
Among his other Chart -Hits we remember from 'Joe and the Bruvver's' 'It Only Took A Minute' (Chart '6' 1962) 'That's What Love
Will Do' (Chart '3' 1963) and 'Sally Anne' (Chart '28' 1963) he did of course have one or two more lower-order successes during
his three years of early popularity, as well as one or two after '63.
'Joe' now 73 years of age still tours in 60's revival shows, 'Joe' a great guitarist, memorable vocalist, great stage performer.
'Joe Brown' is among many great artists from back then that many of us still remember with fondness.

All the 'happy go lucky' Joe Brown hits which he sings and is sheer delight, always great to listen to him this is a superb album if I could give it 10stars I would. Thank you Joe for bringing memories of growing up with you and your music.

Can it really be over 50 yrs. since I first watched Joe on the old black and white T V rock shows: Boy Meets Girl , Ready Steady Go , Six Five Special etc. He was a great musician then and is even better now. This is a classic ; covering his early hits , his instrumentals , a bit of comedy with some blues thrown in.
If you want to hear one of our best guitarists and original rockers still at his best then order this now.

I forgot what a great entertainer Joe Brown is.His voice is not up there with Elvis of course but whose is.There are some lovely old songs here including all the hits.For anyone with alove of 60s music this is an album worth having.What is even more amazing is the guy is still touring.Long may he do so.

What can you say 50 years as an entertainer and he's still got it see him live and it's always a great show. This is a well balanced selection of Joe Brown songs covering these 50 years. There is no deep heavy meaning in the songs it is all good light hearted pop music.
Probably the only meaningful song is the beautiful "See You in My Dreams" played to close the Tribute to George Harrison Concert, this is very moving on that particular DVD.
If you like the pop music, popular folk of the last 50 years buy this.
