Sample text

We were not alone! The revelation on the previous week’s broadcast was that Lonnie Johnson was alive and well and working as a cook in a Philadelphia hotel. That weekend we played track after track from Johnson’s long discography. Born in New Orleans at the turn of the century, he came up the Mississippi to St Louis and began a career as a crooning blues singer. His music evolved from country blues in the 1920s to an urbane Chicago style in the ’30s and slick ballads in the late ’40s. He was a brilliant and versatile guitarist who recorded duets with white jazz star Eddie Lang and cut dazzling solos with Louis Armstrong’s and Duke Ellington’s orchestras.

He ditched the suits in favour of fringed leather jackets and jeans and was among the first in Harvard Square to sport ‘fruit boots’ – ankle-high numbers with a zip on the side and a rakish heel. At first he looked like the out-of-place salesman he was, but the Harvard Square aesthetic was cool, never hyper, and he soon absorbed the elite aura of many of the musicians and their friends. Rothchild moved into a vacuum by recording Harvard Square favourites Bill Keith & Jim Rooney and the Charles River Valley Boys, pressing 500 copies of each LP and selling them to his local clients.

It was far more now than just a soundtrack for students and liberals, it was affecting national politics and creating huge cultural waves. But while we were preoccupied with the conflict between the various ‘schools’, he was way ahead of us, plotting a frontal assault on the fortress of American popular music. The next time our paths crossed, at the ’65 Newport Folk Festival, I would help him storm the citadel. Chapter 5 IN APRIL 1964, I MET MUDDY, Otis and Cousin Joe again in a rehearsal room in London.
