Blind Lemon Jefferson. That's B.B. King's idol, too. Yeah, I had one of his records, and I loaned it to B.B. King. He said he was gonna bring it back, and he ain't brought it back yet, and that's been 12 years ago - John Lee Hooker, from The Voice of the Blues

thanks a lot, Carl !!!
and btw: You can't imagine how much screen shots out of your video I had to do to get an approximately decent picture of that album for my TJ discography , because you always move the guitar's neck up and down before that album cover while playing (still looks a bit shabby, doesn't it?) ;D

Must have been fun, Stefan  ;D

Richard, I use a JVC Everio505 (harddisc) camcorder - it's almost two years old - I always use the internal mike - after recording I hook it up with the computer, reduce the filesize and upload it to Youtube - all very simple and within my 'lowtech' ways.

I did an interview with Evans last year when I did a show on the legacy of Tommy Johnson. Evans was nice enough to make me a copy of the LP for me. You'll find a black & white photo of the cover below:
