'Nother song was "Lawyer Clark." Yeah. A lawyer in Brownsville, Huey Clark. Best lawyer they said, keep ya out of jail. He'd book John out of jail a lot of times, 'cause John get drunk every holiday and go to jail. They wouldn't make him pay nothin'. Let him out when he get sober. - Yank Rachell, from Blues Mandolin Man, by Richard Congress

Hi Stefan,
Thanks very much for letting us know about the additions to your web site, and especially the Mamlish discography and the discography of Pete Franklin.  I feel a lot of respect and affection for Don Kent's Mamlish Records--it was a tremendous re-issue label, something like Origin Jazz Library but even more difficult to find in stores.  Don gets big points from me for re-issuing a lot of Freddie Spruell and being the first to get out Lane Hardin's songs.  The discography on Pete Franklin is tragically short.
All best,
