Doctor John Buying Recordings Blind (15) Buying Recordings Blind 13 May 00


Does anyone ever buy CD's of artists they have never heard which, in England at least (especially since the demise of "Folk on Two"), is the only way of finding new interesting folk performers. What are your criteria? Does the title sound right? No "Human flies" etc. I look at the front. Any silly pictures or those of sweaty youths in vests playing red "guitars" around their knees. At the back. Are the titles (or do they sound like) rock, country or pop material? Any traditional ballads? Are there any choirs, orchestras, saxes etc? Well thats how I do it and how I found Nic Jones several years ago and went on from there. Dr John
