Thread Name: Seasick Steve - how big in the US?
Subject: RE: Seasick Steve - how big in the US?
It was Tunesmith's 'ten-a-penny' remark I was reacting to, Nigel, not yours! Thanks for your comments. Some Fat Possum stuff is great, others not so. To paraphrase Mr Milton "the critics are bit easy on them"... Steve is better than a lot of it in my opinion; though the George Mitchell collection issues on FP are often very good, especially RL Burnside's early acoustic album.

In response, to Matt Milton's recommendations - I like some of Boycott Coca Cola, the other two I hadn't heard are good, but are too 'copyist' for me. Matt, you might like (and some others here might too!)
