Just to prove what a weird, inconsequential, memory I possess when I see this name my synapse take me to a review of the Muskadine LP (in Blues Link 3 Jan/Feb 1974) which starts....Stick Horse Hammond (to name but three!)

Ah. here come men carrying straight jackets

Straight jackets certainly not, they have white coats these days. Anyway if you think you deserve a visit from them, them I suspect lots of us here do  :-X

Among this pack of cranks, where nuts are not only tolerated, but a welcome part of the social landscape, (78 collector) Bussard is the odd man out of the oddballs: an unschooled and profane "pure cracker" (in the words of a fellow collector) among a bunch of mostly urbane Northerners - Joe Bussard, story by Eddie Dean, washingtoncitypaper.com

the quote at the top of the page ;)
