There have been few references to Alan "Blind Owl" Wilson's harp playing in recent postings, so I thought I would take this opportunity to reintroduce his legacy to the forum. 

Thanks for the concise summary Pete.  Alan Wilson was indeed a great player.  Some time ago on this list someone--I think Tom Ellis of Tom's Mics?--posted the URL for a YouTube clip of Wilson playing "On The Road Again" live with Canned Heat. The clip was recorded in the late 1960s, and everything about Wilson's playing on that clip is as modern, original, and inspiring now as it was then.
