Did Davis's wife dissaprove of him playing the blues? I know Son Houses wife never would attend one of his performances for religious reasons; but I didn't know about Mrs. Davis.

I also notice on a tape (maybe the same one, Rick) that Grossman is coaxing Davis to sing the words to a tune (as I recall, something about Chatanooga). I am sort-of sorry he doesn't suceede, although it never occured to me that Davis might be refusing on principle.
