Thread Name: Review: PHILLY FOLKSONG SOCIETY Reviews
Subject: March Madness -David Oestrerreich
The folk, the faux, the few, the proud; they gather at my boom box like swagmen to a billabong. Like John Holmes, my cup runneth over. They come for approval and they come for applause and they came to the right place. I love them all (well, some more than others). Their efforts are valiant and, though I must pick and choose for reasons of taste and space, I am in awe of every artist who presents his work to a critic. I know that when my CD is reviewed, next month, I will be chanting Nancy Adler's "If you don't like me, lie!"
David Oestrerreich, of Indianapolis IN, records under the nom d' disc, Uncle DaveO. He has been folk singing even longer than I have. His latest CD, THE REAL STORY! packs no fewer than twenty three traditional tunes onto a CD, no larger than ordinary. The selections are as varied as a puppy's breakfast. Some you know and, some, you will want to learn. He has a website, of course. (Note: no www)
