Editorial Reviews

Bootleg usa is definitely not a bootleg. Put together by martin simpson himself from several concerts in 1998 & 1999, just before he left the states to re-settle back in england, it has been out of print for some time and has never been available officially outside the usa. Mixing superb acoustic guitar solos with some fantastic songs from the likes of richard thompson and bob dylan, bootleg usa is a great sounding live cd from one of the uk's foremost musicians.

The Amazon reviewer has it right, this is a wonderful live recording which is anything but a bootleg. A selection of various concerts (5/10/98 Suttons Bay WI, 2/5/99 Santa Cruz CA, and 5/6/99 Providence RI), captures Martin just before he moved back to England after living 14 years in the USA. These are mostly solo acoustic performances, with the occasional backing on bass and vocals. The recording quality is great as is the music. I especially love his slide playing and it's amazing to hear him finger pick a melody and play slide leads at the same time (on a studio recording I'd think he was overdubbing). There is a nice mix of tunes and songs - traditional, original and covers, including some great ones found on earlier studio recordings which are great live too (Richard Thompson's "Strange Affair", Willie Dixon's "Spoonful", Ann Lister's "Icarus" and Dylan's "Hwy. 61 Revisited" and "Boots Of Spanish Leather" - which is absolutely beautifully sung!).

If you know and love Simpson's music getting this is a no brainer. If you like gentle, heartfelt, achingly beautiful and masterfully played British folk music you'll probably enjoy this.

Amazingly, Simpson has been producing albums prolifically since the early 80's, and he just gets better with each recording!
