Elmer Fudd Review: Sleepy John Estes (23) RE: Review: Sleepy John Estes 15 Oct 08

Thanks, Art, for your precious memories of Sleepy John Estes, Yank Rachell, and Mike Bloomfield. You are one lucky man to have seen them all.

There's a bio of Yank Rachell, "Yank Rachell: Blues Mandolin Man: The Life and Music of Yank Rachell," by Richard Congress, that is worth reading. It's mostly in Rachell's own words. Blues mandolin is such an interesting form of the genre, and Rachell was the first to record it, in the 20s. The book contains a lot of information about Sleepy John Estes as well.
