Wow - but Bessie Smith spills fire and fury in Hateful Blues on Columbia Record 14023D. Talk about hymns of hate - Bessie sure is a him-hater on this record. The way she tells what she is going to do with her "butcher" will make trifling fellows catch express trains going at 60 miles an hour. The music is full of hate too. You can almost see hate drip from the piano keys. Every note is a half-note. No quarter for anyone - Chicago defender ad, July 1924

blues at Puget Sound Guitar Workshop

Hey all -- It feels a bit blasphemous to promote another music camp on this website. But if anyone has the time and money to attend a second camp this summer (or for some reason can't make it to Port T and is looking for an alternative) then consider going to Puget Sound Guitar Workshop's session 3, Aug. 12-18. That session will feature tons of blues instruction, with Del Rey, Pat Donohue and me all on staff. Del is teaching "Boogie Woogie Guitar" and "Fingerstyle Ukulele," Pat teaches "Masters of Fingerstyle Blues Guitar" and "Fingerstyle Improv" and I teach "Mississippi Blues Guitar" and lead the "Puget Sound Jug Stompers." Lots of other classes going on, from banjo to songwriting to gamelan. PSGW also has two other sessions, but I recommend this one for the blues content (and because it doesn't conflict with Port T). The camp web site is . I haven't been to it before but I've heard good things about it. If you come, bring jug-band instruments! Cheers, Chezz

Hi Steve
The PSGW sounds great! I have happy memories of us doing the Delta Sounds radio programme on KFFA with Terry Buckalew last year. You played some lovely Bo Carter stuff  and I did a Memphis Minnie song with the dubious lyrics! I was back in Mississippi last month to play in the Clarksdale Juke Joint Festival and took the opportunity to go back to Helena where I was warmly welcomed. Sonny Payne is still going strong and he kindly invited me to be a guest on King Biscuit Time.Terry was on good form too. We had a few laughs; I was trying to introduce Police Dog Blues and Sonny dived into his sound effects library and broadcasted the barking of a big, mean dog...

I take your book with me every time I go to Mississippi! Take a look at my photos on my website

Best wishes

Bob Long
