Brian I am glad you made that last post. One thing that has opened my eyes is the wealth of talent out there (most of it relatively unknown or undiscovered)
The fact that so many have entered speaks volumes for JPF and its prestige within the industry.

"I think we can hold our head high alongside any of them for all the music we've uncovered over the years."
That is the understatement of the century.

PS Just a recap about covers. I am reviewing Blues and there are a number of covers mixed in with originals on some albums. That is the nature of Blues it is dominated by covers and slightly different takes on a main theme. Do some of these songs move me?... you bet. But can they be compared to other original material side by side?
I am finding it difficult to get my head round that concept.
