I was wondering if you had any intention of including one of Lonnie Johnson's accompaniments of Texas Alexander in the Lonnie Johnson video you are preparing. I think Lonnie's accompaniments for Alexander were really superlative, actually my favorites of his blues playing. I think something about Alexander's unpredictable phrasing kept Lonnie on his toes and prevented him from relying so heavily on his customary licks. I know it may be beyond the purview of what you've had in mind, but I was just wondering.
: Yes, I am working on a Lonnie Johnson video.
: After that, I'll be doing one on Rev. Gary
: Davis's Early Recordings and another on
: Blind Blake (with different songs than are

: Charlie Patton, I'm not sure whether I'll be
: doing that or not, but if so, it will
: definitely be after the other three.
: Unfortunately, I'm very slow in getting

: Thanks for your interest. I'm glad you've
