When Alan posed the question "What are the blues? What do they mean to you?" the answers were in part something he sought for himself, to understand this musical form that may have been as ancient as the griots in West Africa, or perhaps as recent as the automobile, the airplane, and the phonograph (all of which made guest appearances in the blues). The blues had become a craze, like ragtime, which grew up alongside it, and it leaped from the bottom of the social order to the Astors and the Vanderbilts, who staged blues contests for their own amusement well before the rest of white America came to know them - from Alan Lomax, The Man Who Recorded the World, by John Szwed

You're the MAN Stefan! What a great service your site is. I don't know what it was exactly about this series of record covers that I had trouble with, perhaps the almost too personal or real quality of the portraits but I always found them an impediment to exploring this series, never wanted to take one home, it almost seemed invasive of the model's privacy somehow. Crazy I know...... The power of Art!

So what do you intend to do about contemporary artists (ahem) whose recordings can only be accessed on line? Are we to be written out of the official Wirz discographic history? :(
My loathings are simple: stupidity, oppression, crime, cruelty, soft music.

Thanks for flowers of all kind ...
Crazy I know, ... but reading your last question brought to my mind the old 1932 Louis Armstrong / Betty Boop song that ends with "... You Rascal You." Crazy I know (and certainly not true!), but sometimes ganglia tend to do their own thang ... >:D

Let me rephrase that: So what do you intend to do about contemporary artists (ahem) whose recordings can only be accessed on line? Are we to be written out of the official Wirz discographic history, you rascal you?  >:D
