Subject: RE: Review: THIS IS US: New Mudcat CD set
I hope this makes a lot of money for the 'Cat. It is great value.I agree with everyone about the high standard of performance on voice & instrument by my fellows. I have a couple of quibbles. The volume levels are very varied and I do not have perfect hearing so have to keep turning the volume up and down between tracks. The other quibble is just a matter of personal taste. The mix between folk & blues is about 90% to 10% but I suppose that does reflect the interests of the membership, though I would have liked to hear more blues. Finally, when the Blue Plate Specials were issued I was proud to contribute the silence between the tracks (some of my best work, friends say). I was mortified not to have been asked this time...*BG*
