Re: “There's a Border Patrol Costume at the Spirit Store in Emeryville

This is a joke right? Pansie liberals. Fyi...these have been sold there for over a decade.

Re: “New Documentary Focuses on West Oakland’s Blues Legacy

I would very much like to see this film. I was a kid when all of this was going on. But my brother played/plays guitar and is friends with many of these people and one of his friends bought the Continental Club and tried to revive it the 70's. If you are looking for distribution I would very much like to consider working with you just because of the subject matter.

It actually is a group of people who led us to the musicians we interviewed. We didn't get to all, there was a ton of talent and you seem to be among those - Bob Geddings Jr is in the film as is Wylie Trass, Johnny Talbert is mentioned and so many more. But you are right, not everyone is in it but this film gets a conversation started. I hope you get to see the film, R Mack.

Re: “New Documentary Focuses on West Oakland’s Blues Legacy

Your research is badly flawed. I Played on 7th Street with Teddy Watson, Wylie Trass and with my own group at Esters Orbit Room many times for Mrs. Marbary.(may be misspelled). You should contact Mr. Leroy Smith owner of PASHLO Records who worked with Bob Geddings at his record pressing business on 7th Street to get whole story. You might also look up Johnny Talbert, Rusty Allen and Curtis Moore all of them actually Played on 7th Street. Ronnie has left out a few True Pioneers of West Oakland Blues!
