Addie Pray & Staff Benda Bilili

Have you ever seen the movie 'Paper Moon' ? I'm reading the original book that the film is based upon by Joe David Brown. It's so good that I can't understand why it isn't more widely read or why it was out of print for so long. I have to resist reading it all in one day because I don't want to lose the company of such great characters as Addie Pray and Long Boy. I'm also loving this track 'Polio' from Staff Benda Bilili, the raggedy guitar sound and soulful playing is awesome - wish I could play like that !! love tt
