So I asked him to play "Trav'lin' All Alone." That came closer than anything to the way I felt. And some part of it must have come across. The whole joint quieted down. If someone had dropped a pin, it would have sounded like a bomb. When I finished, everybody in the joint was crying in their beer, and I picked thirty-eight bucks up off the floor - Billie Holiday, 1915-1959

there's this seller "bookmark6" selling some original photographs of blues artists at eBay, some of them I've never seen before ...
... e.g. the following Harry Oster pics of Snooks Eaglin

Worth looking at (Of course I grabbed them and will add them to my discographies asap) !!!

photograph of Sidney Maiden used on the front cover of Bluesville 1035; photographer: Chris Strachwitz

Notice the difference between that sharp dressed gentleman with the not too humble background compared to the shabby windows someone obviously thought more appropriate for the cover of an LP with the title "Trouble An' Blues" (they at least didn't take away his watch) >:D

The first one is the cover photo of a Prestige Snooks album.

The late Kenny Goldstein was producing such LPs for Prestige back in those days... must be from his files. Wonder who's selling them? He was a friend and mentor to me.

Some of the photos were taken by Art Rosenbaum. Like these of Shirley Griffith and JT Adams.
