NORMAN BLAKE 'Wood, Wire & Words'
It has been some time since the last Norman Blake record, but here at last is his latest, a nice selection of story songs and guitar rags. The "story" songs include his tales of THE INCIDENT AT CONDRA'S SWITCH, THE KEEPER OF THE GOVERNMENT LIGHT, GRADY FORRESTER'S STORE & COTTON GIN --all of them Blake originals, as are the three rags that Blake picks on his guitar: SAVANNAH RAG, BLAKE'S RAG and CHATTANNOOGA RAG. CLOVERDALE PLANTATION MARCH is another typical Blake instrumental. Nice CD for his fans.
