Lots of old negatives come forth . . .
Fri Aug 8 06:38:08 EDT 2008
Congratulations Dick, on the nuggets. Gold? Naw, more like pure platinum ! I can't even single out one as the best news among the bunch--they are all such an iconic lot.
As something to remember this moment by, I've decided to start a song for ya (and all the other photographers).
You be my darkroom woman
And I'll be your backdoor man
Who knows what will develop
When you bust open my cans
Pay no mind to whatcha heard
My pictures don't rob your soul
I'll give ya darkroom woman
Give you plenty jelly roll

> My darkroom woman has gotten a full time job as a university instructor so she is not going to be doing my work any longer. So we met a few days ago and she gave me a huge cardboard box that has all of the negatives that I have given her over the years. This not only includes things that she has been printing but also the binders of negative sheets that I have had for years.
> Among the things that I did not know I had:
> A full roll on Son House's final performance (Toronto Island, July 14, 1975).
> Some John Hurt negatives from Newport, 1964.
> A full roll of Carey Bell and Big Walter Horton when they toured together.
> A roll of Mance Lipscomb and Joseph Spence when they played together.
> A roll of Pink Anderson.
> A roll of Buddy Guy & Junior Wells as an acoustic duo around 1972.
> Bonnie Raitt and Maria Muldaur singing together around 1973.
> A roll of Doctor Ross.
> Some shots of Ike Turner and John Lee Hooker together - "The Clarksdale Boys"
> I could go on and on and on because there there are hundreds of sheets of negatives and many are unlabeled. I don't know what to do at this point since printing a lot of them makes no sense financially and scanning them for the web would take many hours.
