Up 'til then, the blues were only inside me. Blind Lemon was the first to 'let out' the blues. - Roscoe Holcomb

It was along about that time that Blind Lemon Jefferson came through, and he stayed around there about a month. He stayed with the other colored fellows and they worked on the railroad there; he'd just sing and play to entertain the men in the work camp. I think that right about there I started on the guitar. - Hobart Smith recalls Lemon in Virginia, c. WWI.

Right, sorry, it's Tony Russell's Blacks, Whites and Blues, out of print in the separate edition I have, but available as a section of Yonder Come the Blues, which reprints the Russell book, Paul Oliver's Savannah Syncopators and Dixon and Godrich's...uh...can't remember the title.  :D

edited to add: it's right there on the back cover of my book: Recording the Blues.

"One Fourth of July, they were having a festival in downtown Memphis, with five or six stages and Charlie (Feathers) was playing on the rockabilly stage. I'm sitting there watching him and I turn around and there's this guy sitting behind me, all dressed up, smoking a cigar. Do you know who it was? It was Roosevelt Sykes, the Honeydripper! Just sittin' there, diggin' Charlie!" - Kim Wood


 8) how cool is that?

Since Rivers is layin' down on the job again,  ;) I've updated the Quote Oracle. This 2009 thread is done, though I'll leave it open for now, in case anyone wants to discuss any of the quotes in the future.

New quotes should be add to the Tell It To Me - Quote Drive 2010 thread
