Surprised - no mention of Lenny Henry's Got The Blues on Sky Arts? Caught first episode and thought it was excellent. Very accurate and some great interviews with people like Georgie Fame, Paul Jones and lesser known artists such as Ram John Holder. Loved the short piece on Annette Rees (?) and Van Morrison was very down to earth. Geno Washington stole the show though - a real character! Would like to have seen Chris Farlowe mentioned in view of the excellent Blues he covered - The Fool, Moanin' and of course the notorious 'Little Joe Cook' record. Looking forward to the rest of the series. Well done Lenny (not a bad singer either)

  • Thanks for that John. Though I'm not surprised as Sky Arts is a bit of a trawl to fish out the relevant material. A good catch that I will have a look at too.
