http://www.usatoday.com/life/music/news/2011-02-04-blues100_VA_N.htm?csp=YahooModule_Life Arhoolie Records founder is a good listener

The story tells it a whole lot better than I could, so here's a quote from Chris. "As long as I'm around," he says, "I'll be dedicated to preserving this music that I fell in love with many years ago."

USATODAY link

Whoops, got in a hurry and forgot the link.


I expect just about everyone here has at least one Arhoolie LP or CD around. I know I have a bunch. Dale

And here's an article from November in the New York Times, no less http://www.nytimes.com/2010/11/28/arts/music/28arhoolie.html?_r=1

Ry Cooder on Arhoolie: Ry Cooder, the Grammy Award-winning guitarist and producer, recalled that "I must have been about 13" the day he took a bus to a blues and folk record store in downtown Los Angeles and for the first time heard Big Joe Williams singing ferociously and playing a nine-string guitar, on an album called "Tough Times." That recording, Arhoolie's second release, changed his life, Mr. Cooder said.

"The whole thing started like it was going to blow up, or fly apart at the seams, and it really took hold of me," he recalled. "I said to myself, 'This is what it ought to be like, total physical involvement with the music, going into it so hard that you just about lose control.' "

He added, "It started me on a path of living, the path I am still on."
