Welcome Kokomo.

It is currently a Yahoo group, with a long history. :)  Access is on approval.

Welcome Kokomo.

http://launch.groups.yahoo.com/group/pre-war-blues/
I've been a member since it started in February 1999 and here's its "mission statement":

"The list exists for the discussion of pre-war blues, that is, various aspects of blues and blues  recordings up to 1943. Topics can include, but are not limited to, artists,  songs, discographical information, books, obituaries, and blues magazines, films  and videos. In addition, we do occasionally stray into the realms of other  pre-war musics, including old time country and jazz. We also venture into  post-1943 blues at times, where there is continuity of style or a *good* reason  for a thread to go that way for a while; but see the next sentence. This list is not intended for the discussion of non-music topics, nor for the posting of radio show playlists or live show announcements, nor for the discussion of modern blues and rock artists or their recordings."

Not as intimidating as it might look; for some the intimidation might come from rubbing shoulders with longtime blues heavyweights such as David Evans, Paul Garon, Jim O'Neal, Tony Russell or Howard Rye or, for that matter, contemporary heavyweights such as Elijah Wald or Ed Komara.  :)

Apologies, I seem to have highjacked a John Henry discussion

No problem, I'll just split the PWBG discussion off and for lack of a better spot, stick it here on the Jam Session Board

Oops, sorry John M, I inadvertently moved your last John Henry post and after moving it back had to rename it, hence the notice hat I had modified your post.

Dang clumsy Moderators!-G-

All for now.

Here's another reason to sign up. The following link was supplied by one of the PWBG stalwarts:

PWBG is an acronym for the Yahoo! "Pre-War Blues Group." See:

I think there's a thread going in Jam Session on this, entitled the same. They should probably be merged, tagged and moved to Down The Dirt Road Blues, which is dedicated to external web destinations.

I looked via a search, but nothing came up. I wanted to put something in here that would come up first if someone did a search for "PWBG." That was my primary consideration. Perhaps you  can leave the topic name, but place it in the appropriate category. "PWBG" is mentioned from  time to time in various posts and is sometimes followed by a question as to what it is, so I thought that this would be a convenient way of providing a lead to an answer.

I've merged the other thread with this one, tagged with both PWBG and Pre-War Blues Group, changed the title to include both terms, and relocated to DTDR
Then we can just refer questioners to that topic directly, or to use the Tags Index, or search, all will work.
At the time Wax started the Jam Session one we had no place else to put it dedicated to task.

I hear via a mutual friend that Wax is doing well.  His nose to the grindstone, he is currently in school working on a masters in social work, I believe... and still plays out with fellow weenie Miller Wise in the Berkley area.

He's posted over at the Woodshed and at IGS in the last couple of days, so I'm sure he's doing okay.
