    I have to say I had never heard of these guys until the movie "Public Enemy" came out a few years. The are really good and it is nice see that the banjo has not disappeared into history.

    I make old time banjos and am one of the woefully stereotyped white Applachians mentioned in the above review. A friend sent me this CD and truthfully I was prepared to listen to it one time and add it to the shelf. NOT! It is so refreshing to hear the banjo so masterfully incorperated into the rock/blues genre. Tradition is great but I also applaud and enjoy creativity!
  • Awesome!!!!!!

    Just an amazing album, featuring banjos in a blues NOT bluegrass venue! Did I mention I love it.

    Seein the J. Depp movie, Public Enemies, and hearing an unknown tune, "Ten Million Slaves", I had to hunt the song and artist down. The way the song was edited in the movie, I thought it was just a song part of the original score. Thank god I was wrong. I'm now a big fan of Taylor's. On another note, upon hearing the newest Neil Young album, Lé Noise, I noticed a song from that album, "Someone's Gonna Rescue You", is eerily similar to Ten Million Slaves.
  • Nasty letter?

    This is a delightful collection of music featuring the banjo. It is upbeat, lively and I am thoroughly enjoying it. I would definitely recommend it to fans of blues, blue grass and folk genres.

    The only negative with iTunes is that the original CD is recorded in HDCD and sounds better on a player with that than does MP3.
  • My ears have heard real music!

    This album is AMAZING!!! I mostly listen to Rock and Classic Rock, but this album changed my taste in music. I love jazz now because of this!
  • Becoming a HUGE fan!

    I first heard Otis Taylor's song "Nasty Letter" at the end of "Shooter" with Mark Wahlberg. I listed to that song MANY times. Tonight I tagged a song at the end of "Justified" on FX channel. Only after a few strums I knew it was Otis Taylor, and immediately loved the song without hearing more than a minute (Ten Million Slaves). I went to iTunes and started playing the other songs on the disc, bought it immediately. $10 for one great song is worth it to me. Now I have 14! I am a blues fan and this takes it to a new level. Something about this music gets me super motivated and singing along, strongly reccommend people to give it a try and diversify their music collection. Besides "O' Brother Where Art Thou" soundtrack, this will be the only Banjo music in my collection!
