So they get part of the tune. Then they flag it and get frustrated. Damn, be happy! You got part of the tune. That doesn't stop you... it's not being complacent, it's being realistic. You can't just go through every CD you have and every tune that you like say 'Why can't I play that?' Or 'Why can't I play it as well as that?' - Jerry Ricks, Port Townsend 97

reat clip!  I was under the impression that I posted several clips pertaining to the blues & Tuvan music back in April (but not this one).  Either I meant to & forgot about it or that rascally, old Mr. O'Muck had them removed so he could have the first clips pertaining to blues & Tuvan music.

I suspect the former, but from what I've heard, one can never be to careful of that rascally, old MOM.

Here is what I meant to post back in April:

I'm flattered to be included in anyone's conspiracy theory, but this was pure zeitgeistian synchronicity.
Rascally, eh? Hmmm.

So a little bird told me.  I notice that you didn't question the old part though.  Sorry, for the weisenheimer crack, but you set yourself up for that one.

If the old clips, if they existed at all, suddenly reappeared, I wouldn't know what to think.

Thanks for posting that, Frank.  I really like the actor who played Lemon, Art Ross.  He is always excellent.
All best,

I was flabbergasted by this film when it came out. What was the bleeping point of the whole goddamn thing if you're gonna savage the music as they did here. And why the gleeping gizzards didn't they just lip sync Leadbelly's recordings? Also, they couldn't find a period Stella anywhere? What a goddamn mess. How many black actors were there out there better for the part than Roger Mosely fer chrisakes. And what , they couldn't afford a dialect coach to teach him a Louisiana accent? FEH! Fred Gerlach would have been a better choice than Dick Rosmini to play the twelve string parts too.

I can't wait to see the all Icelandic cast film version of the life of Blind Boy Fuller!

Its Art Evans John. I knew him a little from the old village days and he'd also wander by when I was Busking in Central Park on Sundays. Nice guy and a good actor, one of the only bright spots in this film. But really..truth to the music please!  Burt Reynolds as George Friedrich Handel, music composed by Henry Mancinni! HYUK!

Nothing but agreement, here - the soundtrack is just about entirely hollow...  useless as music, anyway.

Good dance scenes though, and at least its a movie about Leadbelly.
Its an interesting study in the overpowering impulse to make things 'acceptable" to the general public.
This usually entails taking what makes the subject remarkable and diluting it until it no longer is.
Who exactly is served in the process? The subject? The audience? The investors who lose money on an unremarkable film? Well at least Art Evans got a good payday and hopefully some residuals.
And this was made by no less a personage than Gorden Parks! I guess Ingmar Bergman was unavailable.
But i wonder about Fellini or Satjyt Ray.

From what i've seen in those clips I have to say that is one of the most unconvincing 1920's/1930's depiction i've ever seen

Thanks, O'Muck, for the correction on Art Evans' name.  I really don't want to get it wrong because I've always admired his work.  I should not have given the impression that I watched the clips because I didn't, I just remembered seeing Art Evans playing Lemon and enjoying it, from a partial viewing of the movie on TV a number of years ago.
All best,

Did a quick search for Furtado and the search engine thought I meant to search for "farted".  Hmmm....
SO...
TONY FURTADO!!
Banjo player extraordinaire and a damn fine bottlenecker to boot! 
Some newish vids popped up on youtube, so I thought I'd share one of 'em with y'all.

Plenty more out there on the tube for those interested.
Take care.

I just came upon Houston Stackhouse with Joe Willie Wilkins, doing this great version of "Cool Drink Of Water, on another forum:



"How about that?"

There's a whole bunch of these Maxwell Street vids on YouTube, and I think at least one of them (Robert Nighthawk) has already been posted here. But I really like this one--street gospel:

Jam on the one!  :D

Man I wish I could dance like that - talk about loose.

Really love the two little girls walking through so nonchalantly.

Shave and a haircut, Shampoo, ending!  Love that too! :P

Thanks for posting that Lindy.

dance (ballet) on Sonny Terry's 'Harmonica Breakdown'



the dance itself starts at 2.30 and is a joy to watch; the rest (also in part 1) is Jane Dudley, the choreographer explaining about the dance and how and when it was conceived.

Nice. Did it sound like the Sonny Terry piece was slowed down to you? The B&W stills were beautiful too.
How'd you happen to stumble onto this Carl?
