I thought, 'I'm gonna get me up a one man band.' ... I decided I'd get into it and might make me some money. I didn't know, I thought I might get lucky enough to get something out of it. If I didn't, I'd just be the same old Jesse. I wouldn't cry about it. I figured I was gonna live till I die anyway - Jesse Fuller

There is a fine article on Blind Joe Taggart's Presto record from 1948 in the latest edition of Blues & Rhythm: "The Story Of Blind Joe Taggart's Presto record" by Alex van der Tuuk.

I see that they are on the CD that comes with the 2012 Blues Calendar.  Along with many other great sides including one of my favorite all-time ones, Ida Cox's Fogyism.

I was pleasantly surprised when i heard the Taggart presto on the blues images calendar.I`d heard the the record described as "wrecked" but it sounded much clearer than i expected.It`s a great record,great performances.
