He and Elizabeth Cotten developed a good friendship. He liked her music, too. He told me earlier that if he were to start playing all over again, he would want to play guitar like Mississippi John Hurt - Mike Seeger recalling his interviews with Dock Boggs

Not enough musically to provide a proper analysis.

Not the most original title. Can you please provide a photo of the sleeve for identification purposes, Phil? Thanks. Oh - and maybe a list of the performers on it?

It took me a little while, but luckily your review contained just enough information to find it (hidden in a reference to Bengt Olsson). Thank goodness for Stefan!

Thanks for the heads up, Phil!

There appears to be a YouTube playlist of the album, unfortunately not to be viewed worldwide.

Those of us who can't see the videos, can hear samples of the tunes on Allmusic:

Recorded by Bengt Olsen

Every song looks like it might be a candidate for Mr.Millers puzzlers.

Hi Phil,
Apropos of your last observation, I went to Amazon and looked at the program of the CD and saw that the current puzzler, Lincoln Jackson's "Loping Blues", comes from the CD.  I've lately seen a lot of the songs on the program, particularly those by Lattie Murrell and Lum Guffin, showing up on youtube.  It does look to be a really strong program, and I'm always interested in musicians who were field recorded doing Country Blues at such relatively late dates.  In some ways, that period from '69--'74 doesn't seem so long ago, but in terms of the number of people from within the tradition living and playing the music, it was a completely different world then.
All best,
Johnm
