“It is interesting to observe that the New York Recording Laboratories recorded and issued a relatively large group of blind musicians for their ‘race’ series, the Paramount 12000 and 13000 series. One would only have to think of blues artists
like Blind Lemon Jefferson, Blind Arthur Blake, Blind Willie Davis, Blind Roosevelt Graves and Blind Joel Taggart to name some of the most important exponents.”
