The Blue Shoe Times intereviews Jefferey and Michael Dyson, who produced the Grammy Award winning CD, “Last of the Great Mississippi Bluesmen Live in Dallas“. The CD includes performances by the still-spry Pinetop Perkins, as well as my old friend Honeyboy Edwards and the late Robert Junior Lockwood. They seem to have an interesting perspective, and one of which BluesWire approves, seeing these old bluesmen as a source of philosophical, not just musical, wisdom:
Since we didnâ€™t come from the music business, our attention was focused as much on them as people in addition to them being iconic musicians. What unfolded before our eyes was a compelling story that had not been told. They really appreciated what we were trying to do for kids and this unlocked a part of their lives that focused on life lessons rather than musical ones.
