When Alan posed the question "What are the blues? What do they mean to you?" the answers were in part something he sought for himself, to understand this musical form that may have been as ancient as the griots in West Africa, or perhaps as recent as the automobile, the airplane, and the phonograph (all of which made guest appearances in the blues).

Hellfighters Documentary
« on: March 04, 2013, 01:29:10 PM »
Hi. I'd really like to see the 1977 Harlem Hellfighters documentary film "Men of Bronze."
I'm having a hard time finding a copy, can't afford to buy it.
So, if anyone has a copy they could lend me, I'd be happy to defray postal costs & would send it back within a few days.
Just a thought.
Cheers.
