Hey Everybody!

DJ Grandpa had Spike Lee on his program a few weeks back.  Today he posted a podcast interview with me regarding Blind WiIlie Johnson and it starts at about 24:00 min http://www.djgrandpa.com/

There was also this piece in CrowdFund Insider:  http://www.crowdfundinsider.com/2013/10/25268-kickstarter-star-studded-blind-willie-johnson-tribute-album/

After the weekend we are up to $47,153 37% of the goal. I'm hoping we can get up over $50k pretty quick.  If everyone takes a moment to share a Facebook post or send a Tweet I'm sure we will!

All the best,

Jeff

      Blind Willie Johnson has influenced pretty much everybody in both the Roots & Pop world into the modern era. People seem to forget that he has been covered not just by Sister Rosetta Tharpe & the Grateful Dead but by many, many others including Led Zeppelin, Jack White, & a couple of Bruces, both Springsteen & Cockburn - to name only a few.
