He has the last few times I've seen him. I asked him about it at
Memphis in May a few years ago, and he said he used it because "sh#$,
Mother%^&%!, I got this mother%^&in wareless, because those
mother$%^$in soundmen will drive you mother^&%$in crazy! Mothe~!
You mother^&%in know what I mean, mother%^&%er?"

<;My apologies, but Jr has such an eloquent way about him, I couldn't
resist a direct quote. I spent an evening with Jr. and Champion Jack
Dupree in the trailer at Memphis in May a few years ago, and happened
to have my tape deck with me. As entertaining as the stories were,
I've never been able to edit out more than 45 seconds at a time before
one of them launched into a string of expletives.>;

I imagine Mike will have a different take on this, but Consumer
Reports tested batteries and said there was very little difference
between batteries, and that as long as it was an alkaline, price
should be the determining factor. They recommended the radio shack
batteries, and I've been using them ever since.

Buy the Book!

I cleaned up my tab for Sonny Boy's Help Me and made it into a short book. There's a Kindle version for 99 cents, and if you buy the paperback you get the Kindle free.

Playing "Help-Me" In the Style of Sonny Boy Williamson II: A step by step, note for note analysis of some of Sonny Boy's Signature Riffs

I also write Science Fiction, so you can sample some of my best stories. Also available in Kindle format.

I began collecting data about the microphones used by blue harp players before there was an internet. I began organizing it into in the late 1990s. I accumulated more stuff than I remember. This is some of it.
