This review is from: Singing from the Floor: A History of British Folk Clubs (Kindle Edition)
I haven't even finished reading this book yet but it's 'unputdownable'. The way Bean has organised the contributions of his huge collection of interviewees makes each chapter feel like a conversation.
The book confirms some things that I did know and tells of many things I didn't know and puts it all into perspective. Obviously, it tells of the Folk Club scene but it's also a marvellous record of Britain's social history from the 50s, too.
I'm only 20% through and can't wait to read the rest. Brilliantly put together and a 'must' for anyone who was around 'back in the day'. I have a feeling it would also be of interest to the current crop of young folkies, too.
