CD Reviews

No, Not That Blind Blake
John Hruschka | Bellefonte, PA USA | 12/18/2009
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Be aware that this recording is by Blake Higgs, a Bahamian Calypso artist who also recorded under the name "Blind Blake." Not to be confused with Blind Arthur Blake, the blues singer and ragtime guitarist of the 1920s and 1930s, this Blind Blake recorded in the early 1950s at the very beginning of the calypso boom, backed by the Royal Victoria Hotel Calypso Orchestra."
