John Cratchley I've listened to Harry Smith's 'Anthology' for many years now...it's proven so influential...I think he intended it to be inspirational and this brilliant response on Ball of Wax is marvellous...new artists and new interpretations...just perfect!
Please check out this enterprising audio journal and their no brainer subscription...you'll be very pleasantly surprised.A real labour of love and exquisitely designed artefacts to be treasured.


Favorite track: John the Revelator.
