And he told me... I didn't know nothing about how to play no guitar at all. He said "Hey, go home. Take my advice. You go home. You get that.. straight. You know what I'm talking about? Put that pick down. You think I'm scolding you? You a grown man, Hubert - listen to me!" I went home, man. I went to my basement. And I'm going to tell you something... I was thinking about what Wolf said. He said "Hey, put the pick down." I put the pick down, man. I put the pick down and started using... fingers, you know what I mean? - Hubert Sumlin, on how Howlin' Wolf introduced him to fingerpicking.

Having read Cohn's 'Nothing But the Blues' about 100 times I can't remember seeing that pic of Bo being featured in it.

Bo's complete recordings come to 5 discs on Document so this JSP set must be a selection, too bad.

I agree, that pic's not in the Cohn book. Looking at the track list this is a compilation of mostly Sheiks/associated bands with a little more than one CD worth of solo Bo.

In other words, NOT the complete Bo Carter.  By my reckoning, that would be something like 8 CDs worth!

Is there alot of information about Carter in the Cohn book? I wanna read more about him.
According to the Yazoo liner notes Bo was a moody individual who, in contrast to his pornographic songs, had no interest whatsoever in skirt-chasing, or even partying.

Hi all,
One of the interesting things about finding more about musicians in the biographic sense is that it almost never sheds any light on why their music sounds the way it does.  Which is to say that a musician's/artist's life story doesn't come anywhere near explaining his/her artistic style.  It's one reason I'm never in a rush to read biographies of musicians I admire--they never tell me the things I would most like to know.
All best,
Johnm

In some instances the music isnt the reflection of a life, but instead can sometimes be what fills in the blanks of that person's life, if that makes sense.
