Thread Name: Stephen Calt's biography of Skip James
Subject: RE: Stephen Calf's biography of Skip James
its very interesting really.

i'm really consumed with interest.
i started off with the 1960's recordings.
on hearing the 1931 recording -cleaned up version - you have to be struck by the similarities.

was he pressured to reproduce the 1931 recordings.

put this into perspective.

Bix Beiderbecke to The Beatles. you're a musician. nothing changes.
doesn't that seem odd?
