was generally unknown to the world before 1960, who left a relatively small

through the efforts of Mr. LaVere that Robert Johnson's work has been
re-released, that Robert Johnson has become a symbol of the blues to the
As I see it, he has a greater claim to any profits from Robert Johnson's
estate than any other living person. Claud Johnson may have a valid claim
by virtue of his birth, but the fact is that without the work of Steve
Lavere there would be no estate for Claud Johnson to inherit.
