Diggin’ thru the 78s

20 Apr

forty years of diggin’… I’ve probably looked at 100,000 78s in my day (so far!)

Here’s what I’ve found that would be considered bona-fide American BLUES 78s

John Henry …  Memphis Jug Band …  Blind Boy Fuller …  Big Bill Broozny

I’m guessing early 1960s. God bless ’em! Soon available again.

John Kass– Records I like 1985-2017

16 Jan



This list is largely influenced by:

Two music festivals that I’ve attended regularly over that time frame– Heliotrope, an event hosting (nearly all) local experimental/psych/noise/free jazz artists, and The Deep Blues Festival, which conversely hosts almost exclusively out-of-town acts.

RADIO K, Minnesota’s fantastic college radio station from The University of Minnesota. Certainly one of the best reasons to live here.

In 2009, I worked for Acoustic Sounds as a buyer, so I had my nose in record distributor catalogs a lot, hence the robust nature of that year.

Oh, yeah, friend’s fave lists too (particularly Ed Ackerson‘s and Travis Ramin’s best-of lists).

The list fleshes out greatly in December, when I check out what my peers have picked. I’ve skipped releases that I put out myself on the Prospective, Susstones, and GoJohnnyGo labels, but I might add them in too sometime.
