Stewie, you're a gem! Still not much about the Blakeman's life but I'll devour the crumbs.

Watching this thread carefully to see how many folks are still here that care.

Good article, thanks!

Little bit of thread creep but here's a 1963 interview with Mississippi John Hurt.

Was never familiar with Blake before. But I'm a big fan of John Hurt, as well as Gary Davis, Pink Anderson, and Blind Boy Fuller (and of course Leadbelly) from that era. Gonna look for something by Blake to listen to now. Thanks for the new name!

I guess that's all there is to know about Blind Blake as his life most have been well researched by blues historians; very odd really when you think he played with people as well known as Gus Cannon and Johnny Dodds, particularly as these are musicians from different fields of music. Let's hope something will turn up in someone's attic one day; I read somewhere that a third photo of Robert Johnson has been found but remains unpublished.
