Negros must stop the deluge of filth, which makers of records are marketing among them. The music of the 'Blues' is one thing, but whether good or bad, it is indefensible to put to it all the stench which ingenuity can drag out the under-world and camouflage with words of double meaning. Don't buy them! Don't go to people's houses who do buy them! Don't permit your race newspaper to bear that name and at the same time advertise flagrant immorality set to music. Do anything, do everything, filthy records must go. - Roy Wilkins, (attrib.) editorial in the December 31 1926 edition of the Kansas City Call, probably written by the man who ironically went on to head up the NAACP

"Prater's Blues" w/Devin on Mando!
« on: January 28, 2012, 11:13:02 AM »
Howdy folks!  Haven't posted in a while so I guess it's about time for shameless self-promotion....   ;)  My buddy Devin (Nobocaster) of the Gallus Brothers passed through town recently and we got some time to pick together a bit.  Great fun.  The last tune we played together was "Prater's Blues" by Prater and Hayes.  I've never actually heard the original, so I'm sure I sound absolutely nothing like Hayes, but maybe some o' y'all might dig this anyway.  :)   http://www.reverbnation.com/artist/artist_songs/1704115

Thanks, folks!  I think I've had more fun playing with Devin than anyone else I've played with.  Of course... I don't really play with other people very often.  Gotta work on that...

Very fine indeed boys! :)

Nice, very. Can I deduce from the new avatar you got the El Trovador you mentioned you were craving in an earlier thread?

Thanks again, fellas!  @Rivers...  No Trovadors for me, I'm sorry to say.  Just my trusty '36 Trojan I've had for a few years now.
