Looks like a fun record!

Would be great to get Joe Bussard to Port Townsend, eh? ;D

Seeing all this talk of Joe Bussard reminds me of my very early days of interest in this music, when I sent away for the first John Hurt Piedmont album.  At that time or soon after I remember the other items in the Piedmont catalog were a rediscovery album of Robert Wilkins, an album called "Kings of the Twelve String guitar" featuring Barbecue Bob and others, and "Jolly Joe and His Jug Band", which I believe was Joe Bussard and some friends of his (Bob Colter?).  I remember looking at the cover at that time and thinking, "Wow, they look old and pretty scruffy".  When you're twelve or thirteen, everybody seems old.  Talk about a collector's item--at this point, I reckon it would be an awfully hard disc to find.  I never owned the record and only think I ever saw it once or twice.  It's getting to be a long time ago.
