Matter of Taste

A year or so ago, our friend John was ragging me about my iTunes library. I was scrolling along, looking for songs he might enjoy, when we got to the middle of the B’s.

Blind Alfred Reed
Blind Blake
Blind Boy Fuller
Blind Joe Reynolds
Blind Joe Taggart
Blind Lemon Jefferson
Blind Mamie Forehand
Blind Roosevelt Graves
Blind Will Dukes
Blind Willie Davis
Blind Willie Johnson
Blind Willie McTell

John already knew I love the blues, but thereafter he brought up my preference for blind musicians (or, at least, musicians nicknamed “Blind”) several times.
