Have written about the late Canadian blues singer John Witmer here, and Gerry Wand has written about him here. His legacy is preserved by Larry Smith, bass player and producer, who was in two bands with John Witmer and who continues to remind people, via YouTube and otherwise, of the incredible music that these bands produced. Larry recently made me aware of this one:
Another unrecognized classic. Wish that somebody would put together The Essential John Witmer on CD, with companion release on iTunes or similar. Plus wider distribution for all the material that Larry Smith has. I know of at least two CDs issued via Larry Smith that merit much wider distribution.
If not done in next couple of years or so, would hope to be in a position to step up.
