Besides the Charlie McCoy albums, there is a late 60's Flatt and Scruggs
Album with Doc Watson with Charlie on it. Also the Nitty Gritty
Dirt Band "Will the Circle Be Unbroken" album has a fair amount of harp on it
from I think Jimmy Fadden. Also Wet Willie and Ozark Mountain Daredevils
which were more country rock had a fair amount of harp on them.

For older country/rockabilly/early rock and roll try to find
Delmore Bros albums with Wayne Raney and of course the Wayne Raney
albums - some songs had duel harps. I believe Charlie Records on England
resissued at least one if not more of Wayne Raney's recordings. There was also
a country chromatic player who did tons of session work in the 40's and 50's
whose name escapes me for now. Anyone remember?

Never here it mentioned much on this list but some of us have actually played
in bluegrass and country bands alot. I wonder why?

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.
