Dr John Wot No Folk Books? (13) Wot No Folk Books? 15 Apr 99

There are many books on blues and jazz - many of them excellent; but very few books on folk music and most of those I've found are not all that good. I can find information about obscure jazzmen and bluesmen but nothing at all about those sometimes excellent performers who recorded for the Library of Congress. Anyone any ideas of why this should be. Maybe it's because blues and jazz are well defined idioms while folk music isn't or doesn't seem to be. Perhaps we should have a Mudcat book. Any suggestions as to how it could be done. -DrJohn-
