Come on Mr M...There's so much going on in Night and Day Blues and the vocal phrasing is terrific. One of my fav Blind Blake tracks ever!

FWIW, John Tefteller apparently now owns the record, and he's going to publish the tracks on the 2014 Blues Images calendar!!! 
He says, on the Real Blues Forum, that the record is pretty whupped, but they hope to be able to remaster it with Richard Nevins.
The songs have Blake scat singing, singing falsetto, rapping his guitar, and playing extensive solos, according to Tefteller.

Cheers

A Google search for the "Real Blues Forum" does not throw up a direct link. One of the more interesting ones seems to be the "West Australian Reptile Forum" or some such thing. Is it part of the Blind Man Blues Forum?

Whatever, in my book there's only one real blues forum and you're on it now.

"The Real Blues Forum" resides as a group on Facebook.

And while I enjoy reading this forum, there's some incredible content being generated over at TRBF that is definitely worth WCers to check out.

Regarding the "The Real Blues Forum", Tom Rushen has it.

But if you don't want to join this group (or facebook in general),  rest assured that I'll continue to smuggle worthwhile information here, to my favourite Forum!  ;)

I'm not crazy about the awkward FB software/format, either, but there's no denying "The Real Blues Forum" has generated some powerful content.

It's also extremely cool that it happened this year, the year when his final times and resting place became known, and the grave soon to be marked appropriately.

as a native Virginian, it's awesome to have found out he was born in VA, and now his last record was found in VA.

also really weird to think about how there was probably country blue fans from VA who were in close vicinity to this flea market. hell, i've been to so many flea markets around this state over the years that i coulda very well drove past it. is there a full story about the finding yet? i wanna know exactly where in VA it was.

 all these records are out there, hanging out nearby waiting for someone to find em.

I like to think that the discovery of this record was Blake's way of thanking the fans who recently provided a gravestone for him.

Amen brothers, that's a really nice thought. And "Big ups!" to Angie and Alex VDT.

If any Weenies are part of the Facebook universe I'd like to third Tom H's & Pan's recommendation to check out the Real Blues Forum there. Their sister groups have unreleased recordings & lots of great documents & rare photos.

Well absolutely, if you consider Facebook to be some sort of universe. Don't forget to tune-in to the Facebook country blues juke while you're there, also check out the Facebook country blues wiki, FB c/b tag index and FB c/b search facility.

Jeesh, what is this, the invasion of Mark Zuckerburg's disillusioned zombie shareholder army?

Most of us are quite happy with what we've got going here, but thank you very much all the same.

Please PM one of the moderators before posting any more FB spam. Probably not me; pick your favorite moderator. Thanks. Or feel free to post on the Down The Dirt Road board, which is set up for promoting other worthy websites that are not weenie.

And now, to return to the topic, 'topic' being an alien concept on FB for more than 5 minutes I do realize (he said sarcastically), shall we continue discussing the vastly more important subject of the recent Blind Blake discovery? Thank you very, very much.
