Disadvantages: None

About twenty years ago, knowing how much I enjoyed acoustic guitar, a friend gave me a vinyl album of a Doc Watson live recording (that also featured his son), “On Stage.” I loved it, copied it to cassette and when turntables and cassette decks became en ... Read review

"18 of the most important tracks in... country blues"
Review of Complete 1931 Recordings in Chronological Order - Skip James by 2mennycds

Advantages: Innovative, unique, haunting
Disadvantages: Falsetto singing and variable sound quality - less accessible

A big part of my fascination for acoustic steel-strung guitar is the range of sounds that a purely acoustic instrument can produce, and the techniques used to achieve them. There’s no denying that 1920s and 1930s America was a true golden era of the i ... Read review

"He would give her 94 dollars, she would give me 93.."
Review of Hard Time Blues - Scrapper Blackwell by 2mennycds

Advantages: Accessible simply arranged vintage blues, innovative for its time
Disadvantages: Genre not to all tastes

The recordings on this CD mark something of a milestone in blues guitar and in rock and pop guitar, too. In the 1920s and 1930s, blues guitar was very much chord-based. Chords – groups of three or four notes – were either strummed or their component notes ... Read review

Review of Sleepless - Kate Rusby by 2mennycds

Advantages: Gorgeous singing and instrumentation, moving songs
Disadvantages: (Slight disadvantage only) Two or three whimsies
