5.0 out of 5 stars A Masterpiece, 20 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
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.

I have to comment now - just can't wait. I have only read about 20 % of this review - mainly the bit that says @I haven't finished reading this book yet but its 'unputdownable'. The way Bean has..'

and well I , for one, am Hooked. Once I find a bit of spare time I am coming back here to complete this comment - but I would say that this comment itself cannot fail to be of interest to those people who have found the above review to be of interest.
