The Legacy Of The Blues
« on: May 12, 2012, 07:48:56 AM »
The systematic release of 10 LPs (plus one "sampler") by Sonet in a series mostly recorded by Sam Charters entitled The Legacy Of The Blues had commenced in 1973 and culminated in 1975 with publication of a book of the same name.

Sam came to Britain to promote this and here he is at The Village Bookshop in London's Regent Street. I don't know the source of the photo, or photographer, but have a vague recollection that Sylvia Pitcher was in attendance. (click image to zoom)

that was the first book on blues I read - & shortly afterwards I found the Robert Pete Williams lp at a record fair - so it was a significant part of what got me hooked on the music.
