Mention of new Frog CDs reminds me that this site was recently the scene of
some animated correspondence about JSP's underhanded ripping off various small
reissue companies. Frog was one of the companies mentioned.
Purely by chance, I came across a JSP LP of the blues singers, Johnny Shines
and Blind Will Dukes the other day. The sleeve note contains this rather
"And to finish. As I have mentioned Robert Johnson so much and his influence
is felt so
strongly on the music contained on this album, who are the bastards who are
holding on to the several photographs of Robert Johnson that are known to
exist but which have never been published. These people are presumably trying to
get some financial reward from their eventual publication. Forget the
Dollars guys, publish them now!" John Stedman
What splendid advice. What a grand source for it come from.
