The chocolate tape was sliding off the reels and across the silver recording heads, while the needles on the two meters jumped to the beat on the face of the big Ampex. This was 1959 and I finally had German mics and a Cadillac of a recorder and was doing stereo - the first stereo field recordings made in the South. You should hear the recordings - for me a life's dream realized - Alan Lomax, The Land Where the Blues Began

Unreleased blues recordings from the 50's

I believe this hasn't been mentioned here yet?

British jazzman and concert promotor Chris Barber is presenting previously unreleased U.K live recordings of American blues artists.

The recordings are from 1957 and 1958 and include, among others, performances by Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee, Muddy Waters and Otis Spann, and Sonny Boy Williamson.

Strange indeed. Hopefully they will fix it. Meanwhile you can read about it here: http://www.chrisbarber.net/ . Note that they have some old tour programs to be seen too.
