I cried last night and I cried all night before. Like a fool! And I said that I ain't gonna cry no more. No more! If he can stand to leave me, I can stand to see him go. I said "Go"! - Bessie Smith, Hateful Blues, 1924

Just wondering if there's any way we can see all the quotes, so as to check whether you already got 'em?

Sorry for the delay in response, NJ, there's been a lot of activity to deal with in the revival of the Juke. To answer your question, I don't know for sure, but there should be, and we'll look into it. Likeliest solution to my mind is to have a file on Weeniepedia.

IMHO the quotes only work because you never know what you're gonna get, so I'm opposed to publishing them en masse. Not only the lost element of surprise, anyone would be able to grab them and use them on their websites. A lot of time, typing and quality control has gone into it.

The current collection represents 10 years of work by dozens of weenies, and you'd have to agree it helps WC to differentiate itself from other websites.

I always skip any dupes when updating the list. It's pretty amazing a) how few dupes get posted and b) that I know immediately if it's already there.

Sorry to be an old school curmudgeon about this, in these days of 'open this', 'open that', but I'm opposed to releasing them en masse.

I agree that we don't want to be giving away such a valuable resource.

Mike, Clarence "Tom" Ashley, an Old-Timey musician, used the same line in his "Rude And Rambling Man". =)

"We wanted to play the blues, so we got some stuff we recorded that's almost a blues and it's almost a waltz -- which I think would be nice for y'all to learn about... Don't ever say 'I can't do something because I don't have this...' I learned to play fiddle on a cigar box..." -- Canray Fontenot

Josh White referred to Willie Walker as "the Art Tatum of blues guitar"!

Yes, I've come across that White quote, too. However, all that remains of Walker's work is two takes of "South Carolina Rag" and "Betty & Dupree", right?

Pep -

          Sad, but true - the other two sides recorded at Walker's only session did not survive into our time. I was going to get baby Tate to record them (he knew them first-hand), but he died before I could effect that. He was in awe of Willie to the end, which is why he was reluctant - he DID play SC Rag with Larry Johnson at a concert in 1972, though!
