GUEST,Rich Seasick Steve - how big in the US? (152* d) RE: Seasick Steve - how big in the US? 27 Jan 08

Hi George, yes I think you are right, we do become more demanding of the things we know are usually very good. I always wondered why not much fuss was made of Bob Dylan's 'John Wesley Harding'; which I think is a cracking little album. However, if you consider that before that album he had released 'Bringing it all Back Home', 'Highway 61 Revisited' and 'Blonde on Blonde' in quick succession, maybe people's expectations meant they jusdged the album against the standard of the previous three, as opposed to on its own merits.

We have a young family and have therefore stayed in over the last few new years eve's and watched JH's Hootenanny, and have always been impressed with the line up. I wasn't very impressed with this year's I have to admit, although SSS was a welcome relief after the debacle that was Paul McCartney and Kylie doing 'Dance Tonight'.

Always good to have some thought provoking discussion, nice one.
