    The old eyes ain't what they used to be, but still -- where's the woman?
    Robert Johnson's mother, describing blues musicians:
    "I never did have no trouble with him until he got big enough to be round with bigger boys and off from home. Then he used to follow all these harp blowers, mandoleen (sic) and guitar players."
    Lomax, Alan, The Land where The Blues Began, NY: Pantheon, 1993, p.14.

    It’s the artist who’s a woman, Ranald. She’s very attractive and friendly and lovely, and she’s not in the picture.

    -very nice looking mandolin though, eh?
    Very nice.
    I like that.



    (Her name’s Helen).

    Yes, indeed. It is well to keep her memory alive. She's been on my mind since I happened to watch "Fantastic Mr. Fox" about a month ago. And just last week I picked up some free DVDs the library was discarding, including that. Some very enjoyable music in it (along with everything else).
    But that's just my opinion. I could be wrong. - Dennis Miller

    Am kind of new here and delighted to discover "Women with Mandolins." A happy thing.

    Glad to receive A J Lee's vocal on Harvest Moon.

    Her voice & delivery a perfect for this song & the Brothers do her justice.

    Thank you Charles E.
