I met John Hurt through Mike Seger in Newport in '63. His agent, Tom Hopkins said we could sit and talk. Of course it was a festival and I was sitting backstage with him and a few people. A month or so later he was playing at the Philadelphia folk festival. I saw him approaching me and I started walking briskly to him to ask if he remembered me, I was in my early 20s, and when I got near enough, he said 'Hey Man! Do you remember me!?' hehe! That explains Mississippi John Hurt! Instead of me asking, he did! - Jerry Ricks, http://www.blueschat.com/tscripts/bc062198.htm

In the meantime, I now have the entire original 1970 publication in a PDF file.  If anybody out there doesn't have a copy and would like one, I will email it.

Thanks for posting that SF Weekly article, jostber. Some conflicting info in the two links as the Gillett site says Olsson sold his recordings to Fat Possum, but the SF Weekly article says recordings were sold to Birdman. At least one of those recordings is out on CD on Birdman: Bishop Perry Tillis - Too Close.

Sorry for quoting an old post, but I just found this on Birdmanaphone Records:

Birdman Records recently purchased Bengt Olsson's entire library of recordings. This compilation is the first in many releases that will showcase this library

This should provide us with some great records?

The original label: http://www.birdmanrecords.com/index.html

Thought I'd give this a bump in light of Stephan's new discography http://www.wirz.de/music/olssofrm.htm

Thank you Stephan, that's very much appreciated.

And thanks for pointing it out, Bunker Hill.
