Zushi on Lomax
Certainly I read The Land Where The Blues Began with wide-eyed fervour, probably a bit the way Lomax himself was when he went rocking up at the next beaten-down shack in Mississippi to bribe some old timer with whiskey to sing for him. Hey, great times!
Unlike Mr Lomax I can't say I ever saw Leadbelly or Fred McDowell doing their stuff, but I did catch Yo Zushi himself about three years ago doing an indie-folkie thing. Kinda good, I thought. When's he playing again though? Can't see much on his MySpace.
