Bebop Spoken There

Charlie Musselwhite: "I used to see these posters in the windows of the [Chicago] blues clubs advertising Elmore James and Muddy Waters which knocked me out. I was making a note of the addresses and at night I'd go back and listen to the blues until 4-5 in the morning." - (Blues Matters! Aug/Sep 2021)

Yes, by then the Anglo-American exchange situation had changed with the rise to prominence of the British groups such as The Beatles, Stones etc. opening the doors for American artists over here.
