Baldry In The News: Four-Star Review in Record Collector, and another Brick in the Walk at the Hard Rock Resort

Posted in Uncategorized on July 3, 2008 by pulmyears

This morning, my email inbox had TWO different Baldry surprises.

First, my father-in-law Michael had sent me some photos from the new Hard Rock Resort in Myrtle Beach, SC. They were close-up shots of the bricks in a memorial tile walk at the park. One of which commemorates the subject of my most recent book, Long John Baldry. (Thanks Mike for sending these).

Here’s the setting (click on the photos to enlarge):

Also this morning, the great Spencer Leigh of BBC Merseyside legend tipped me off that he had given my book IT AIN’T EASY: LONG JOHN BALDRY AND THE BIRTH OF THE BRITISH BLUES, a FOUR STAR review in the August, 2008 edition of the prestigious RECORD COLLECTOR magazine. (The one with Paul Weller on the cover).
