CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Every Day in the Week Blues - Pink Anderson and Simmie Dooley

Simeon "Blind Simmie" Dooley (July 3, 1881 - January 17, 1961) was an American country blues singer and guitarist.Dooley was born in Hartwell, Georgia.

Dooley met Pink Anderson in 1916 and taught him to play guitar. The two played on the street and at parties when Anderson was not traveling with Dr. Kerr's Medicine Show. In 1928 Dooley and Anderson went to Atlanta to record four pieces for Columbia Records. Two were published in the same year, the other two the following year. The records sold well. Anderson was invited to make further recordings without Dooley, however Anderson refused to be without Dooley.

Dooley died from heart disease in Spartanburg, South Carolina, at the age of 79
