It was music which had been brought up from the Mississippi delta by migrating post World War II Negroes and hardened and toughened and electrified and amplified to suit the dance halls and mean streets of Chicago, and it thrilled me to the very depths of my soul. To a dissolute white kid from the mean streets of a concrete housing estate, this music seemed tailored to echo the way that I felt - Fred McCormick on discovering The Best of Muddy Waters (on Pye International), in a world of Cliff Richard and Helen Shapiro

So my escape from the Holly Daze is reading about the music.

Yeah, I saw the Jugband book among the related items, and I am almost more intrigued by that myself.

In years gone by there has been discussions at Wennie concerning the progress of a book that Pen Bogert had been researching for a couple of decades entitled Hidden History: The Story of Blues in Louisville. I last had contact with him in 2006 but an email to him yesterday has bounced back.

Later addition

I'd completely forgot about yet another stillborn jug band publication (1971) which eventually saw light of day only as an 80 page booklet. Attached is a scan of the introduction. (click image to zoom)

Just saw "In Tune: Charley Patton, Jimmie Rodgers, and the Roots of American Music" in Amazon and the reviews look excellent.  Anybody read it, and, if so, is it worth a call to Santa?
