SPONTANEOUS LUNACY VERDICT 5/10
Why does this guy aspire to write about a wide range of music when he does not seem to have the taste for much of it?
Actually, if you think about it, Bob, it's not such a wide range.
It's been a long time since he reviewed anything by a white artist, even
though there was a great deal of western swing and "hillbilly boogie"
being released at this time.
He also claims to exclude blues records, although this is a very fuzzy
area for him, but he does exclude many influential blues classics.
He includes straight pop records by black artists and gives them low
ratings for being pop records. I understand that this isn't racially
motivated ("Black artists should stick to R&B"), but it comes out
looking that way, at least to me it does.
