While many tracks on this album do sound as though they have influenced Nick Cave, some really do not, unless he heard them and decided that that was not in any way how he wanted to sound. Having said that, there are some real gems in here, and Odetta's "Another Man Done Gone" is haunting me; well worth the price simply to discover it! Led Belly's "Black Betty" and The Alabama Singers' "Jesus Met The Woman At The Well", are exactly like Cave's, while the version of "Fever" is like no other I have heard, which is interesting, if irritating - can't sing along to it!
I'm glad I have this album, but I will be editing some tracks out of the playlist as no one in the family like them!
