1887-1972: I Never Played To Many Posh Dances

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - John Storm Roberts
The music here, all from the late '50s to mid-'60s, includes solos (including some traditional Sussex fiddle), duets, and group numbers. Included is wonderful music, a very thorough job, and a unique record of the range and style of a pub-cum-village-hop musician. It's not to be missed by any lover of English traditional music.
