The great Washington Phillips compact disc is available from Folk-Legacy. CLICK HERE, and be sure to mention Mudcat. We are charter members (along with Andy Cohen and Pat Conte) of the informal Washington Phillips Fan Club! We even have a Dolceola! It need a little work, but Andy Cohen tinkers with it whenever he's passing through this area. He plays the instrument very well, so if you hear of him (with his wife, Larkin Bryant) doing a program near you, don't miss it.

Wasn't it Andy, Rick, who proved to your satisfaction that the instrument on the Leadbelly session was a Dolceola?
