I was bare-footed, naked, out in the ice and snow, with all my yes-yes out, and see my big toe. I was bare-footed, didn't have on no shoes, and the rocks, gravel and concrete is giving my toe the blues - Peetie Wheatstraw

One day a man wearing a Western-style hat with a red bandanna around his neck walked into our store and announced that he was Jelly Roll Morton, the greatest stomp and blues piano player this side of New Orleans. Cassius Clay had nothing on Jelly Roll! - Lester Melrose, comparing Jelly roll Morton to a young (pre name change) Mohammed Ali

Julius Lester came in with a music caravan. Bob Dylan was there, Pete Seeger, Theodore Bikel. But what they forgot about was that for about 100 miles around, [they] had some of the best traditional music ever. And we didn?t have the consciousness then to pull that together, you know, to pull in those living legends of blues men and women who were right there.?--Worth Long, organizer for the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee, talking about a movement festival in Greenwood, Mississippi in 1960s.

"Did your gun go rootie, toot, toot?" asked Baker's attorney. "No," she replied. "It went TOOT. I just shot him once." - Frankie Baker, possibly the original Frankie, explaining how she dealt with Johnny, in the course of an unsuccessful lawsuit to collect damages over Republic Pictures' movie Frankie and Johnny (from the notes to When the Sun Goes Down Vol 1, Walk Right In)

After years of consideration I?ve come to the conclusion that, within limits, gear is more important as a topic of conversation than as a way of making music. It?s just not that important. ? Chris Smither

Sorry JohnM, I know you hate be immortalized in quotes but I had to include this one:

For "Snowing And Raining", both Alec Seward and Louis Hayes were playing out of A position in standard tuning.  Slim starts out stating his problem, and Jelly offers no sympathy, as per usual.  They worked so well this way, and they continue to alternate verses once they start singing.  Most of their cuts are pretty short, and they remind me of episodes of "The Beverly Hillbillies" in that they don't so much end, as they do stop - JohnM, Guitar Slim & Jelly Belly lyrics thread

"First thing you got to remember, there ain't no money above the fifth fret"--Larry Barnwell, a regional sales rep for the Martin Guitar Company and a good flatpicker, when asked by a potential customer, a fingerpicker, whether he should buy a 12- or 14-fret guitar.
