Rodney Jones was here
yesterday and read his wonderful Mississippi John Hurt poem. It is like
Ode on a Grecian Urn for the blues and Hurt and the Mississippi, that
dark mud, is what Jones calls it. Anyway, if I was doing a film about
the mississippi, I would definitely have a recording of John Hurt singing
Creole Belle. Yes I would. And if you can get Jones to read his MJHurt
poem that would be a good thing too.
