Thread Name: Marais and Miranda Documentary
Subject: RE: Marais and Miranda Documentary
Thanks open mike--I was a little confused when I looked at the thread today. I didn't think I'd offered it anywhere! It's nice to see that the book is not only available but affordable.

The review you quote from that poster actually seems kind of off-kilter to me, kind of general ad copy stuff. I think Richard Dyer-Bennett, Andres Segovia and Marais and Miranda would pack houses wherever they went--and it involved a lot more than just "guitar playing." They were consumate performers. And I don't believe Andres Segovia sang anything, gently or otherwise.
