Archibald: 'Ballin' With Archie'

John Broven, Blues Unlimited, October 1970

DUE TO OUR tight schedule we had only one more day in New Orleans. It was all systems 'go' on Saturday from first light (almost) as we set out to find the pianist, Archibald. A quick examination of BLUES RECORDS (an invaluable research weapon, despite the occasional printing errors...) reveals that the man cut 13 sides for Imperial and his last session was way back, in 1952.

Total word count of piece: 723
