Just after we posted last week’s episode, news broke from England that legendary author, scholar, and blues researcher Paul Oliver had passed, at the age of 90. Although we featured this episode early last year, we’re running it again, as our way of paying tribute to his memory, and to his incredible life and legacy. --SBH
If you're curious about where the Blues Revival of the 1960s got its start, you might want to take a look at "The Country Blues," from 1959, "Blues Fell This Morning," from 1960, and "Really! The Country Blues," from 1962. It's three classic slabs of vinyl from the very advent of the Blues Revival — on this episode of Blues Unlimited.
