Taped March 24, 1963 for a Milwaukee, Wisconsin radio program, on the eve of the very same day that the seminal Blues, Rags & Hollers LP by KoernerRay & Glover was created. Spider John Koerner is the man who first introduced a young Bob Dylan to the 12-string guitar, a bona fide legend who is acknowledged as an influence by artists as diverse as John LennonBeckThe Doors & Dylan himself. Nearly 50 years ago, Paul Nelson, writing in the Little Sandy Review and Sing Out respectively, said that “Koerner’s art is like Chaplin’s, as great and lasting as it is entertaining,” while calling him “the most innovatively brilliant acoustic blues musician of his generation.” In the year 2010 — seldom performing and now in his 70s — the reclusive Koerner is “one of the world’s greatest living practitioners of traditional American folk music.”
