  • I love this kind of site. I hope someday, there’ll be many more, dedicated to some great musicians whose memories should be kept alive. I am regularly checking record auction sites for scans & helping online discographies to grow. Thought you might like some of the Johnny Hammond scans in my files… SCANS
