Subject: RE: Where are all the black country songs?

You're right, Art. Blind Lemon and Lightin' fit in very well here.

I have a great picture of Blind Lemon and Leadbelly taken about 1954 on the top deck of a Birmingham Corporation tram (#64 - Erdington) crossing over Salford Bridge just about to ascend Gravelly Hill. My mother is the conductor. My father was a driver for the Midland Red and it was his day off... busman's holiday, you know.

All the best,
