I doubt seriously the guys cutting records and playing the jook joints in the 30's and 40's thought they were creating any kind of "Golden Age."

And if the Golden Age is passed, I want to know who will be first in line to tell the current crop of blues professionals they're all a bunch of BS posers who need to just stay home.
