A popular magazine called “GoldMine” has published a sweet review on Spanky and our Gang’s, “Back Home Americana, Vol. 1″ recorded by Eclipse Recording Company.
He says, “Spanky McFarlane’s voice has grown richer, deeper and grittier than when the 25-year-old led the group to six consecutive hit singles for Mercury Records in 1967 and 1968. She sings a powerful version of “Brother, Can You Spare A Dime?,” a song the group first released on its eponymous debut LP over 40 years ago. Today, her pipes more effectively suggest the ironic desperation expressed in this Depression-era anthem that was introduced in a 1932 musical revue coincidentally titled “Americana.”

Jazz and Blues Magazine has published its November 2009 Edition which features, Eclipse Recording Artist, Willie Green!
The magazine said, “Blues Project finds Green’s emotive vocals and textured harp-blowing out front of a full band on electric and acoustic tracks.”

They go on to say, “From start to finish, Blues Project, which Willie Green dedicates to Florida author and folklorist Stetson Kennedy, is a celebration of life from a man who has seen his share of hard times. Fortunately, his legacy has been documented on some fine recordings, and Green sounds like there’s nothing he’d rather do than play music to make people dance and forget their troubles for a while.”
