- Bahamian Songs by Blind Blake (the calypso one)
10/10 Lars Dideriksen 13th October 2009Norman's the reason I discovered this gem of a cd. It is indeed warm and with that exotic joyfulness to it that also includes a hint of melancholy in some instances (like the utterly amazing track "Love, Love Alone". Can't recommend this enough. :-)
10/10 andy dawson
Found this album by accident whilst looking for the american blues and ragtime guitarist of the same name on i tunes - what a happy accident! listened to a few samples and that was it - bought the album. This music will put an immeadiate smile on your face. Blind blake has one of the warmest , most soulful voices you will hear and sings humourous upbeat folk songs that combine calypso rythmns, jazz, and american folk and blues. The recording quality is great and some of the songs such as 'My comsumptive Sarah Jane' and 'Jones, oh, Jones' are just straight hilarious. As they say, if you don't dig this then 'you got a hole in your soul' !
