Norman Ives' Introduction to the Harmonica

Playing tracks by

Norman Ives, Harmonicats, Rory McLeod, Charlie Musselwhite, Fingers Taylor and more.

Norman Ives died in 2015. This collection is from the wide range of blues, rock, ballads, country, and international harmonica music which he sold on cassettes in the 1990s. These tapes introduced me, and many others, to the potential of the harmonica.

This is a tribute to Norman, who introduces the first track. He had run an important mail order harmonica business in Caistor, Norfolk, UK, since the 1980s,



not really my kind of playing but interesting to listen to.
