Yes, that's been discussed here too. :D

As far as record covers and related ephemera go, the "High Fidelity Art" should supersede just about all of the rest (the author actually hints at this in his inside cover text)

Irwin Chusid (the author of the books on Jim Flora's work, along with Barbara Economon on three off them) is a musicologist of sorts, who has a very good radio show on WFMU in New Jersey. He's also the author of "Songs In the Key of Z", an interesting book on 'outsider music', which includes a chapter on Robert Graettinger.

During my recent fascination with Gerry Mulligan's journey across the US with Graettinger's ex- live-in 'lover' (she reported he was impotent), I contacted "The Mighty Irwin" (the name of his radio show), and he surprised me by returning my email in less than five minutes.

Where did you find it? If I may ask. Might be interested myself. The Harmonica blues album cover art looks like a drawing from Robert Crumb.

I think it is. Possibly a Yazoo comp if I remember right. I had it on CD a long time ago.

I think it was a sellout here in Germany "Zweitausendeins".
