Comment on Big Road Blues Show 3/1/15: Kings Of The Twelve String – Great 12-String Blues Performances 1924-1943 by Peter B. Lowry http://sundayblues.org/archives/9038/comment-page-1#comment-96401 Thu, 05 Mar 2015 11:08:18 +0000 http://sundayblues.org/?p=9038#comment-96401 Jeff –

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??

In 1953 Albertson recorded Ken Colyer, Chris Barber and Lonnie Donegan. Some years later they were finally released on Danish Storyville Records and British Tempo Records.

Never heard the Johnson and Spann recordings before, really outstanding stuff. Two of my personal favourite lps on Storyville are Guitar Blues (SLP 166) which has liner notes by the venerable Paul Oliver and Louisiana Prison Blues (616 002) recorded by Harry Oster. Thanks for putting out such good quality broadcasts, very much appreciated over here across the pond.
