What is Blues then? It's a worried mind. It boils down to worry. Sometimes you worry so, it cause you to jump off the 'Frisco bridge up here, worry you so it cause you to stick a gun in you... that's all, it's worry. Some folks say, 'well, he went out of his head'. Well, if it's worry cause you to go out of your head, that's what it is. But that's the Blues - Reverend Rubin Lacy

Willie Doss
« on: May 18, 2008, 04:13:45 AM »
built a little Wille Doss discography (only his Newport Folk Festival 1964 recordings available, as far as I know) at

Questions: Anybody knows anything about the whereabouts of the man (provided that he's still alive, which is most unlikely since he's been born 1899)?, any knowledge about date and location of his death ?
I wasn't able to find anything on the internet ...
Any response appreciated !

There's a footnote to Len Kunstadt's lengthy review of the three day event which reads:

Vanguard records did a lot of field recording here at the festival. Certainly hope they captured plenty of good blues and gospel sound for all to hear.

With hindsight I think it's safe to say they did the artists proud....
