I'll second what Harry said re: PayPal. I use my primary credit card as the source of payment for PayPal instead of linking PayPal to my bank account, however.

Books and Articles / Re: "Lost Delta Found"

Thanks for mentioning Lost Delta Found, John.  It got me to pull the book down off my shelf for the first time in a few years.  A few thoughts:

The book should be required reading for anyone who frequents Weenie Campbell.  If you don't want to read the whole book straight through, I'd recommend starting with Samuel C. Adams Jr.'s Masters Thesis, "Changing Negro Life in the Delta", just for the close-up view it provides of everyday life in and around Clarksdale.  I think all of us who are immersed in the blues too often think of Black life in the rural south as work, blues in the local juke on the weekend, and church on Sunday.  We tend to overlook things like 4H Club Rallies, School commencement exercises, baseball and football games, minstrel shows and circuses, and other things that were big events in Black life back then. 

And we tend to think that everyone was listening to the blues.  But when Adams asked local Blacks to name their favorite songs (he breaks the list into the favorites of "older" and "younger" people), Popular songs predominate.  And not just current songs, like Stardust and My Blue Heaven.  There are patriotic songs (God Bless America, My Country 'Tis of Thee, The Star Spangled Banner), old chestnuts (Home Sweet Home, You Are My Sunshine, I Love You Truly), and a surprising amount of Stephen Foster (Old Black Joe, Swanee River).

And on the jukeboxes, pop, big band, and proto-R&B predominate.  Remember, these are bars frequented by Black patrons in a time of segregation.  But Bing Crosby, Sammy Kaye, and Eddy Duchin (singing Maria Elena) sneak in there.

On the whole, the book makes one realize that Black life in the Delta in 1941 was culturally much richer and vastly more varied than we commonly imagine, and helps put our favorite artists in a more realistic context.

I recommend the book wholeheartedly.
Frankie Lee Sims would be near the top of my list of the 10 most under-appreciated post-war blues artists.  I've heard everything he recorded except his last session (1960 in New York City), and I don't think I've heard anything by him that didn't make me want to get up and dance.  The guy knew how to get into a deep groove!
Wow, Frankie Lee Sims meets Bob Wills (Leon McAuliffe). What a great sound!

Hi kinsuk:

You can also send an e-mail message to: stefan at gtrvideos dot com

I had a problem in the past when trying to pay at Stefan's site using a credit card. The card was not accepted for the purchase. After contacting them, one of the staff got back to me, saying that the card was rejected on their end by the credit card issuer (MasterCard). I called MasterCard and they told me that it was flagged as "Unusual Activity" because of the distance from where I live (the Seattle, WA area in the U.S.). They made some changes to the security settings and when I tried again, the card was accepted. So, to make a long story longer, perhaps a call to your credit card issuer is in order to check on the problem. They should have a record of transactions, even those that were not completed.

It struck me as strange because I had made other purchases from companies as far away from here as Stefan's business in NJ. But with computers and AI running the show in background, I guess anything is possible.
Hi all,
This was just put up, by the very great Frankie Lee Sims, doing "Don't Forget Me, Baby". Those greasy chords on the lap steel backing him sure sound good!

All best,
Have you tried contacting the workshop?
