Hi Scott,

Personally, I loved your book and challenge anyone
on this list to come up with a better one on the
enigmatic Little Walter.

Your efforts were not lost on me... not one iota.

As a journalist, I can fully appreicate the
monumental amount of work it must have been, not
only to conduct all those inverviews, sift through
all those archives and records -- but then to put
it all together in a well-documented, yet
~readable~ and fact-filled book... 

Well... my hat's off to you. You guys should be
given a medal. The harmonica-playing public, and
blues fans of all stripes are forever in your debt!

Stay well!
