The server situation should be fixed. I did notice last night that the server would time out even at low loads, so be patience, I’m writing angry emails to the host daily. All the links should be working (I fixed the Minnie Wallace link also) but if you find anything broke let me know.

I’m starting out the week with a post-war blues track by Jewell Long. In fact it’s from 1960, but i haven’t been able to get this song out of my head for the past week. I don’t know a lot about Jewell Long, but he was a blues singer from Texas with a great rough voice. He was a pretty skilled guitar player – but his voice, sort of an in-between Gary Davis and John Estes is what really has his version of Frankie and Albert running around my head all week.
