Hope we can all be generous to the Burnsides,

First of all I hope R.L. makes a quick recovery.
I've liked all of R.L.'s stuff since the first time I heard it (here on the Juke), the documentery "You See Me Laughin'" made me appreciate R.L. and all the rest of the "Fat Possum" blues musicians. Asie Payton died while they were still filming and it made me realize that these real blues guys, the guys that live the life, are few and far between.

Thanks for posting an address to send donations.
