    Very worthy enterprise. Good luck with it.

    Do you have the first published appreciation of James Booker which appeared in Blues Unlimited in 1974? If not contact me privately and I will provide a scan.

    The details are as follows:

    Mike Leadbitter “James Booker” Blues Unlimited 108 (Jun/Jul 1974, p. 9-10)

    i’m a nola resident and on a drunken night at the leaf i had a very wonderful convo with jb’s manager. you metioned something that involved a very well known important actor. the only reason you we spoke, besides me being very outgoing and attractive, was that the bar had closed down due to filming and my friends and i had came to see the the weekly band. so instead of them, you might remember the night, i approached the jukebox and put on some booker and it went from there. i lost your # but please if you see this i want very, very, very much to do with this project. please find a wAY TO FIND ME SINCE I FOUND YOU OR CAN FIND YOU AGAIN AT THE LEAF. but i think (unless i wanna go through frenchy) you remember me. i love JB. and i love nola. and i’m drunk and remembered this from putting him table. i want to be a part of this. ray charles……maybe. he didn’t play w/ the jerry. now that’s magic.

Have something to say?
