Thread Name: Stephen Calt's biography of Skip James
Subject: RE: Stephen Calf's biography of Skip James
Er, that's Jeff Todd Titon, not "Tilton," as a slip of the typing fingers has it.
And while I'm here, I might mention two outstanding blues biographies, very much in contrast to Calt's: Robert Gordon's Can't Be Satisfied: The Life and Times of Muddy Waters and Bob Riesman's I Feel So Good: The Life and Times of Big Bill Bronnzy, They're not the only ones, of course, just two that I happen to have in my personal library and enjoyed when I read them.
Maybe one day a more temperamentally suited writer will provide us with the biography that Skip James deserves.
