Henry Townsend- My Sweet Candy

Goodbye, Mr. Townsend.

"He's still alive?" That's how my Patchchord preview about this weekend's Kansas City Kansas Street Blues Festival begins. It's mind-boggling the man bragging about his magic stick in this filthy1933 recording will be "live and in person" a few miles from my home on Saturday. That's Roosevelt Sykes on piano. Enthusiasts will want to see this relatively recent video of Townsend doing his thing.
