This is correct, Smokey. ;)  That was John Hall's reasoning, despite
changing the spelling of the name.  I seem to recall there would have
been some sort of conflict using the exact spelling of the name, but I
could be mistaken, so don't quote me on that! :)

The funny thing is that most people call the harmonica "Bushman", but
this diatonic is a particular model of John's Bushman brand, and it's
actual name is "Soul's Voice"!
