Side Selvidge is a great singer. It would be wonderful if an archive of his performances were available
Thank you for covering the Sepia label. I hope you can go back in time and let people know about the many incredible reissues they have done in the past 10 years. Many people do not know about this label. Great material and great packaging, often with a note from the artists themselves.
