Great note, but I was living in Greenville, Miss. at the time and working as
a reporter for the daily newspaper. Midge was in America, touring with his
band, but was not in the Delta on tour. He was there as a tourist only. He
came back later to play several times, however, even visted the schools with
Willie. Mighty impressive cat.
