A goldmine of information, with an amazing cast of characters. The definitive statement on the subject and a very entertaining read to boot. --Rob Walker - author of Buying In and Letters from New Orleans
...a fascinating study and anyone who has an interest … in the way songs evolve and are passed along through history will find it an utterly compelling read. This critic confesses to a weakness for this type of book and devoured it with relish over a few days, though it will retain a favourite place in his library and remain a reference for years to come. --Barry Hammond - Penguin Eggs music magazine
What better way to honour a great song than to tell a great story about it? --David Fulmer - author of The Blue Door and Chasing the Devil s Tail
