True, plus a lot of people were aware of "Jimmy Reed at Carnegie Hall"
at that time, but pickings were slim, especially on mainstream radio.
I think Bonnie's original idea holds true that Europeans pay more
attention to our culture than we do, and tend to stay loyal to people
they like (I think that's what she meant, anyway).
