More essential than you would think
Cory L. Schwent | Bloomsdale, MO United States | 04/26/2002
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Essential music from this forgotton pioneer in country music harmonica. Lots of boogie music. Don't let the cover fool you, this is hard driving country music, not hill music. This would have gotten 4 or 5 stars if there were any notes, song info, recording dates, or a better cover. This should have been treated more seriously."
Forgotten Star

"We all consider the pioneers of country music to be Jimmie Rodgers, the Carters, and of course, Hank. But, here's the real thing when it comes to the original harmonica genius. This is an affordable album that allows the listener to enjoy the most gifted "harp" player to ever grace the stage of country music (today's Blues Traveler with John Popper is a mere pimple on Wayne Raney's backside). There are 16 numbers here that showcase Wayne's strong, yet gentle, voice, including: "Why Dont You Haul Off and Love Me"; the tongue in cheek "Adam"; and "Burning Your Love Letters". I doubt you will ever hear any of these cuts played on todays radio, but that's the beauty of recorded music. Granted, these songs are half-a-century old, any fan of good music will completely enjoy every song provided on this CD. I strongly suggest you buy this one...before it is no longer available. One criticism is
the packaging leaves a lot to be desired, including no liner notes regarding the artist."
