[Harp-L] The Bernie Bray Harmonica Player of the Year Award

I have cassette tape recording of Don Les given to me by Smo-Joe ten years ago.  Whenever I get the "big-head" 'cause I hit some lick I'd been practicing for.....I just play that tape and get humbled...over and over.  Thank you Smokey.....
