Things are looking beter

The living room with the kitchen area to the left. Since this video the right lower wall and windows have been knocked out and rebuilt. The large doors and 2 windows above them at the end will be replaced with glass doors and a glass roof for more light.
The layout upstairs is finished and I'm very pleased with what will be my playroom. Toilet nearby and if I get my way also a fridge and coffee machine. No need to go downstairs anymore 😁.

Elga Edmonds a.k.a Elgin Evins Muddy's first drummer

Some of you may have already seen these photos on "The Real Blues Forum" but I thought it would be appreciated if I shared them here also. My guess is that the man kneeling is Elga Edmonds as is the man in the bottom right corner of the musicians photo. 
I'm very pleased with them and they make a great addition to my autograph collection. Hope you enjoy them also.

Visitors requests....maybe you can help out

You can leave requests, comments  and replies in the usual way and after moderation they will appear below. This might take a couple of days and reposts up to a week ..... I've got a life outside of the blog.
Please do not request new or easy to find CD's as they will not be posted here.
