Joe Smith interviews Jagger, McCartney, Bacharach....apparently pretty much everyone. Retired American music mogul Joe Smith has donated recorded interviews with a who's who of 20th century popular music to the U.S. Library of Congress, which is posting the digitized audio online. The first batch are up now -- more coming at some unspecified future time.

I love that these exist. I love that there are yet more to come. I love that they're being made freely available in original form. I love this post.

I am part way through the interview with blues diva Ruth Brown and it is most excellent - a real time capsule. I will be spending a lot of time listening to these. Yay. Just wanted to stop to say thanks, bowline, this is awesome.
