“If the blues is an ocean, and that ocean is condensed down to a lake, and that lake is condensed down to a river, and that river is condensed down to a stream, and that stream is condensed down to a puddle, and that puddle is condensed down to a glass, and that glass is condensed down to a drop. That drop would be Son House.” From Bill Wyman’s Blues Odyssey

“Wider than the heavens is my fame…I am the best as regards the power of my fingers…nobody will ever be found to match me.” Turlough O’Carolan
