A marvellous piece of music journalism, even for someone like me who knows almost nothing about the blues: The Ballad of Geeshie and Elvie, the story of seeking out the story of two brilliant African-American women blues musicians of 1930.

A must-read; the twists and turns of this history just keep building up.

Oh, wow, thanks for pointing that out. I'd skipped by it on Metafilter, but checked it out on your recommendation. Fabulous.
