Blues and Gospel Caravan 1964

I'd like to say that I got to see this show but I was in the wrong place, too young and had never heard of the blues.
Please visit this link http://www.blues.co.nz/dig-this/documents/b&gc64jm.pdf for an article from Simon Napier, Jazz Monthly July 1964 about one of the shows.

I remember seeing the show in Sheffield, quite superb. Gary Davis was unbelievable, and Cousin Joe a revelation. He should have toured here, he would have been very popular . Muddy would have been more impressive with a bigger band, but you can't criticize his show. Sister Rosetta Tharpe was loud & flashy & somewhat out of place, but her show was great. The TV show was a fine momento, but it should have been filmed in a dry studio, not a damp railway station.
