 thanks tom for sharing this terrific piece. im a big fan and far from an expert but the photo sure looks like it could be roberrt johnson.
and if john hammond junior is positive the pic is of him, im that much closer to being sold.
interesting to read that HBO is doing a picture and the connection to the gentleman who wrote the Ray screenplay--i couldnt help but notice how much the "johnny shines" figure in the picture looks like jamie foxx!
