RIP Pinetop Perkins

Pinetop Perkins, the last of a generation of bluesmen and, at 97, the oldest Grammy winner, has died at his home in Austin. Billboard has a more thorough obituary. Highlights of his work available at the library include his recent Grammy-winning album with Willie "Big Eyes" Smith Joined at the Hip (CD 32495) and Muddy Waters' Chess Box (CD 7625-7627).
