He spent a lifetime collecting the blues.

The Smithsonian listened.   Link to article here.    


A fantastic effort.  Great history that could have been lost.  It is unfortunate so much of it is such old recordings they are not much for listening.   I have their 4 CD complication they extracted from the library.  History but I don't seem to put them on as listening. I hit the newer stuff. Muddy Waters , BB King etc. 

Thank's for sharing steakster! These Blues legends, and greats like Buddy Guy etc, should be respected and celebrated before and after their gone.
