Mostly about his early days with Blackie Crawford in Texas.

"George Jones, the Singing Marine".......

"Curly had a personality that was kind of weird at times"........

"I was with Blackie in Beaumont when I got my Bigsby"............"God, I regret the day I let that guitar go. I don’t even know what I did with it"......

Etcetera.

With several early pix from Bobby's collection that you won't see anywhere else.

Very Happy Having been lucky enough to be in San Jose, Calif. In 67-68 . I spent many nites mourning lost love and PTSD. Listening to Hoyt Henry and the BLACK BROTHERS at Cowtown I believe the lounge was called.
To me BOBBY BLACK is one of the GRAND MASTERS of any style steel guitar.
HOPE TO TALK WITH HIM AGAIN.
HAPPY TRAILS. CAA
Very Happy
