Herman E. Johnson Discography

no big thing - a little Herman E. Johnson discography

but at least that gave me the opportunity to upload into that internet a second picture of that artist (from the Oster 'Living Country Blues' book)

Stefan - I was just listening to Herman Johnson today and took a peek at your discography...  this time around I noted the following songs, all listed as "unissued:"

- Crawlin' Baby Blues
- C. C. Rider
- Happy Days
- What Is Wrong With You
- The Bachelor's Blues
- The Deceitful Brownskin
- Esso Refinery Blues
- I Just Keep On Waiting
- Depression In '61

rec. November 3, 1960, March 26, 1961, April 5, 1961, April 27, 1961 & May 12, 1961 in Baton Rouge, LA by Harry Oster; Herman E. Johnson, voc, g

Am I correct that these come from the songs transcribed in Oster's "Living Country Blues?" I'm happy to be wrong, and that there might be actual tape of these somewhere that some little birdie might have hipped you to....  wouldn't THAT be nice? :)
