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.
