Just what I was thinking.

Very satisfying to see old friends once again, including some i recorded. Save for Phil Wiggins, I believe all have passed on. Thanks, George.

Additionally, there are two CD's taken from the festival with more material added to those from the film on the Southland label from the late George Buck in N'awlins!
