Big George Brock told me he saw Memphis Minnie play up in Walls, Mississippi, as a young man. He was impressed and said what other male bluesmen of the era have said, "She played guitar just like a man!" Sexism aside, the point is that she was a true talent. These classic sides point to that talent. - Roger Stolle (Cat Head)
