Yeah, but never knew where they were from. During their hey-day I was more into jazz anyway. I DID see a few blues players at a road house in Port Allen La. back in 1960. Lazy Lester, Rice Miller,
Wilhelmina Mae Thornton (don’t think she was yet a mama at the time), and even took a ride to Tyler EAST Texas for Bruce Channel (Delbert McClinton on harp). Had some records from ‘Southland’
record co. If I listened to blues at all back then it was more delta blues. That and Texas swing, Queen Ida, Dr. John. Never much cared for Chernobyl blues.
