Nothing But The Blues XXIV
John lost the 'the light in his left eye' after an accident at the age of six. Some odd forty years later he became completely blind.
Although John played all over the world until his death in 1977, he 'disappeared' several times for a couple of years. The longest period he vanished was between 1951 and 1962. At that time he got international recognition after playing in two documentaries on the Blues in 1962 and 1963.
John got his nickname from the fact that he took little naps in between recording sessions.
The tracks 1,2,3,4,5 and 6 are all recorded on August 2 and 3 1937 in New York . Tracks 7,8,9,10,11,12,13 and 14 are also from New York but in April a year later. The other tracks are all recorded in Chicago. Tracks 15,16,17,18,19,20 in June 1940. Tracks 21,22,23,24,25 and 26 in September 1941, shortly before John would disappear for a period of almost 9 years.
