Regarding the Mable Hillery Xtra LP.

I fear that as long as the dreaded "n word" appears so prominently on the front cover along with the use of the term in her song, reissue on CD (or any other medium) it's doomed to sink without trace.


Comment on Big Road Blues Show 12/2/07: Forgotten Blues Ladies – I Ain't Your Hen Mister Fly Rooster by Amanda Wed, 18 Mar 2015 13:39:04 +0000 Are there any books or articles about this? How and why these ladies were forgotten and how they reemerged? I'm writing a research paper. Thanks!

Nice show… a few question marks, though. To these ears, Ed Andrews does not play a 12 but is in an open tuning. Louis Lasky sounds to me that he's playing a Gibson Harp Guitar, and unsure about Julius Daniel… Do not have access to Seth Richard at the moment. Lonnie Johnson I think played a ten string guitar and not a twelve, to get technical! Keep them shows a'comin'!

The from-behind shot of John Hurt with his semi-bowler stingy-brim hat is correctly identified. The other photo further down and labelled as Hurt does not look like him at all,,, and not just the atypical hat! Skip??
