Hi Ho,

Here's a bit of a potted bio from stuff I've picked up around the ridges:

Jack Johnson is a Hawaiian who did a surf movie a few years back that was critically acclaimed. Apparently his guitar playing prowess attracted a few people's attention and this album ensured.

I'm pretty the track Ben Harper plays on is called "Flake" - I've heard it on JJJ and was thinking about picking up the album as a present for a mate of mine who's into John Butler, Ben Harper etc. (Saw it for $21 at Chandlers last week which is darn good value if you have to buy CDs).

He toured out here earlier this year and my aforementioned mate reckoned it was the gig of the year when he played in Brisbane. (He's pretty excitable though . . .)

See what you think - look forward to your views. BTW, everyone else, feel free to correct any inaccuracies etc.

Cheers.
Steve
