When I was young, my parents had a guitar shop in Berkeley, CA. They stocked Arhoolie Records, Sing Out! Magazine, and all kinds of good things. They also went to blues performances as often as they could; I dimly, dimly remember seeing Big Mama Thornton as a child, and I know we went to the Cabal Coffeehouse in Berkeley to see at least one old Delta blues guitarist.
So how come I didn’t know about this until yesterday?
Thanks once again to Fred Clarke at Slacktivist.
Wait, here’s another!
