It is a very nice story told here. All the pain of a harsh life is here
described for the widow of Sleepy John Estes.
Nice telling of the Newport 1964.
I would recommand the following CD:
Sleepy John Estes "From Memphis to Chicago; 1921-1941" Frémeaux FA 258
It is a 2-CD set of the pre-war recordings of Sleepy. The sound quality is
excellent as the booklet (written by Gerard Herzhaft, author of "The
Encyclopedia of the Blues"). You may get difficulties to buy this CD,
because the record company is French. Anyway, if you see it, buy it !
