If you're on the email list for Centrum, you got a copy of this video in your inbox this morning. Here it is for those who aren't.

A powerful song from Phil Wiggins, sans harp.

Hi all,
Here is a beautiful cover from Robert Lowery.  He taught at Port Townsend a couple of years.  He was originally from Arkansas and lived for many years in Santa Cruz, California.  He was a nice man.  Boy, I think he sounds great here, and I love his singing.  It's good to hear you again, Robert.



All best,
Johnm

Hi all,
Many thanks to Stefan Wirz for posting this clip of Curtis Jones (!) performing "Cherie" live, as part of the American Folk Blues Festival.  It's so great to see performance footage of someone you assumed you would never be able to see.  Here it is:



All best,
Johnm

Hi all,
I was very excited to find this posting by Stefan Wirz on youtube this morning.  It's of several tracks by Robert Curtis Smith from a 1999 release, "From Mississippi to Chicago" on the Hightone label.  I was unaware that any later recordings of Robert Curtis Smith were commercially available.  If you enjoy this music, you may want to keep track of Stefan's youtube channel, because he has been posting really stellar music.  Here is Robert Curtis Smith:



All best,
Johnm

Stefan posted this vid from Wilbert Atwater, a new name to me. As far as I can tell, the only other mention of him on Weenie is on a thread entitled "Banjo on Guitar." Looks like he's a North Carolina guy, so naturally I want to ask Lightnin' what he knows about Wilbert.

Hi all,
Here is Bishop Perry Tillis doing "Nobody's Fault But Mine".  I know nothing about him in the biographical sense, but I sure love this.



All best,

This track is one of several recorded by or for Swedish researcher Bengt Olsson in 1971 and 1972 and issued in 2006 on Birdman CD BMR-093. Eight of the tracks were issued on the English label Flyright; the Birdman CD has many of these, plus four previously unissued tracks; one of these is Nobody's Fault. The Birdman notes say that in his younger days, Tillis was a traveling blues player who met and played with Blind Willie Johnson in Alabama in the 1940s. Some years later, he turned from blues to preaching and playing the gospel, and in the late 1970s started a church in a building next to his house in Samson, Alabama. He died in November, 2005, aged 85.   
The Birdman CD is titled "Too Close" and it's a real nice set (thanks, John, for prompting me to haul it out again). Here's another one off  it ...

Thanks, Al, for the information on Bishop Perry Tillis and the other song by him.  Man, that's what I call heavy time!

Thanks blueshome. In my book, Johnny Shines is up there with the best of them and could do virtually no wrong. Both voice and guitar always stunning.
