Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 9/22/13 7:28pm davex:

@Davee: Not bad, as far as I can tell here. And yes this is awesome music!
Avatar Sun. 9/22/13 7:28pm Inner Ear Detour:

On Mance Lipscomb, I'd also recommended the book I Say Me a Parable: The Oral Autobiography of Mance Lipscomb, Texas Bluesman (1995). Great opening set, Monica.

  Sun. 9/22/13 8:14pm trish:

Wow. Yeah. Catalogues lived above the phonebooks in a cupboard between the phone and the fridge when I was growing up. 'Choose from here,' it all said, silently.
