This CD features interviews I made in June and July of 1982 with the performers who appeared in the “Blues at Home” collection. The questions I addressed to the artists mainly dealt with the meaning, contents, and correct spelling of their blues verses and biographical information. The album includes Mrs. Van Hunt, Sam Chatmon, Eugene Powell, Laura Dukes, and James “Son” Thomas. All tracks were digitally remastered from the original tapes in 2013. Editorial assistance by Corey Wetherington, Penn State University.
