    LeadBelly - "Absolutely the Best"

    Listening to it now.....

    all I can say is ... WOW.

    Never thought a cd made from old 78's would inspire me. let alone music made 70 years or so ago.

    The man was a genius, pure and simple. I am not condoning his actions in life, but his music was simply amazing.

    Plus hearing songs I have heard all my life in the original form ... it is very cool ...

    examples:
    Black Betty
    House of the Rising Sun (New Orleans)
    Irene, Goodnight
    Midnight Special
    Where did you sleep last night (covered on Nirvana, MTV unplugged)

    Wouldn't it be great if Paul could add a forum specifically for discussing recordings? Maybe it could be called the Recordings forum.

    :D
