  1. I've got the Revenant set, Frank, but haven't listened to it in quite some time - your pick today is a great one. Such an other-worldly sound . . .

    1. Thanks, Marie. Other-worldly is right. While he's not really blues, Dock Boggs fits into the blues headspace I believe, and he's one of the "scariest" rural singers to record pre-war, blues or hillbilly. . . .
