"We like to think of our style as gospel and jazz ..."

""... so we like you hope, hope you like ... well, anyway, here goes ..." Words remembered from an intro to "Children Go" at a Joe and Eddie live performance that ended up on one of their albums.This was the greatest birthday present I've ever received! When the albums I collected as a teenager began to wear out, I made tapes of them and have been listening to those ever since (needless to say, this CD is a *vast* improvement to listening to tapes that are over 30 years old - the sound is nothing short of AMAZING). Since ALL of their songs were my "favorite," I can't say that I wish pieces like "The Muddy Old River" were on this CD - because what I really want is MORE CD's so that I can have *every* song they ever recorded sounding as though someone has turned back the clock and they're right here in the room with me!They were the first singers I ever saw perform live - a terrified teenager, clutching their latest album to my chest. After the performance, I was too shy to ask them to autograph it, so my uncle approached them for me. As they signed, they looked over his shoulder and smiled at me and I thought then that *nothing* that would come after in my life would EVER rival the pure joy of that moment. I was right ... although I've dealt with my share of celebrities since then, nothing ever has come close to matching what I felt that night.These two men made a HUGE impact on my life and I've judged every other singer and group on how they stood up against the music of Joe and Eddie ever since. As Joe and Eddie are still my favorites, it goes without saying that no one has yet made it over a bar that their perfection set impossibly high. Had their career together not been cut so tragically short by the untimely death of Joe Gilbert, there's no doubt in my mind that they would have had a well deserved place on the list of the best singers of all time. It did my heart good to read in these reviews that Eddie Brown remained involved in the music industry - communication at the time wasn't what it is today and it was difficult to find information, or I'd have followed his career, every step of the way. If you want to permanently remove the word "depression" from your vocabulary - buy this CD and listen to it at least twice daily. I promise you that it's the least expensive "therapy" you'll ever find :-)"
Undoubtedly the best duo ever!

"I was introduced to J&E the first part of 2000 by my wife who needed to give back two vinyl LPs to her brother and wanted me to record them off before she sent them. I was hooked! Finding this re-issue of their ninth LP with 14 more songs from their first eight LPs was an epiphany! This CD breaks through the clicks, pops and hiss of even the most pristine vinyl. The depth of the tones and distinct stereo separation gives serious voice to having the entire J&E collection remastered and released on CD. Any one want to start a fan web site?"
More Joe & Eddie on CD, please!

"I thought I would spend the rest of my life only with my LP's...thank goodness I have Joe & Eddie on CD! I didn't realize how much I missed hearing those wonderful voices....if you have ever loved folk or gospel music, do what I did...buy 2 copies and give one to your parents! I would love to have more Joe & Eddie, like "Black Is The Colour", and the whole LP of "Walkin' Down The Line" on CD."
