Review of "Bawdy Songs & Backroom Ballads," by Oscar Brand

Review of
Bawdy Songs & Backroom Ballads, by Oscar Brand

Two out of five stars
 While the songs in this collection are entertaining and are as bawdy and crude as the cover suggests, the problem is that you generally need a microscope to read the lyrics. In order to verify that the songs were as crude as claimed, I was forced to use a search engine to find the words. They were entertaining and it is easy to imagine a group of men loaded with drink singing the songs in as close to unison as such a collection can manage. Too bad the book is largely unintelligible.
