I heard no colour line in the music... to bring recognition to the Negro's supremacy in jazz was the most effective and constructive form of social protest I could think of - John Hammond Sr., in his 1977 memoir John Hammond on Record

Good question. I've known Paul for 35+ years and for the majority of that time he's been researching and writing a Blind Lemon Jefferson book. Grapevine chatter has from time to time suggested it was about to be published, then a few years of silence, followed by other reports of pending publication and.....nothing.

Judging by this recent article about Mack McCormick, I'd say you can forget about Biography of a Phantom.

The irony here is that the title 'Biography of a Phantom' may end up to be better suited to a book about McCormick.
