Your list was very cool, Kathy, and you explained the methodology, the abscence of which I realized made me look like I just looked up ten songs by blind guys. I imposed a one song per artist limit so it wouldn't wind up being all Stevie. For Doc Watson (lost LP somewhere along the line) and Blind Willie Johnson I have only the songs listed, from compilations. The Sonny Terry cut eliminated Blind Boy Fuller as a solo artist. And I own only some downloads of Ray's stuff, because his catalogue is a mess (like Nat Cole's and the Everley Brothers'). When somebody decides to clear up all the rights and issue the 15-CD box set, I'm in.
