Very much agreed about Henry Rufe Johnson. Wonderful recordings.

Yes I will!!! Saw him many times. One special performance was a duet with Peg Leg Sam at The Endangered Species in Chapel Hill.

Perhaps a mite too famous among the hardcore, but for me Cleeve Reed and Harvey Hull's Stack-a-Lee has to make the cut: . Even though neither the music nor the vocals are obviously emotional, the overall effect absolutely floors me on a level very few pieces of music in any genre can. In particular, this one verse:

One of them's a boy
And the other one's a girl
Well you'll be seeing your children again
But it'll be in another world

Has come close many times to bringing a tear to my eye. But maybe I'm just a weirdo.   :-\

If you're looking for normal, you've come to the wrong place.  ;)
