Desperate Man Blues: Discovering The Roots of American Music
The Story of Joe Bussard
Dust-To-Digital
By James Calemine

Desperate Man Blues tells the story of Fonotone Records founder Joe Bussard. For over 50 years, Bussard has collected rare records by traveling to Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama, Kentucky and Maryland. An avid collector of 78s, Bussard remains a tireless seeker of “America’s real music”.

This DVD and soundtrack contains songs by artists such as Lonnie Johnson, Son House, Blind Willie McTell, The Carter Family, Robert Johnson, Charlie Patton and many others in this documentary.

The original 2003 film won Best Documentary at the Dendy Awards and Winner of Film Critics Circle of Australia Award. This DVD, issued by archivists at Dust-To-Digital, contains 40 extra minutes—titled “King of the Record Collectors”—of additional footage.

Joe Bussard deserves this documentary because it preserves his legacy and his never-ending search for Cajun, bluegrass, blues, country, gospel and jazz music. This film contains footage of rural landscapes, Son House performing as well as veritable songs straight off the 78s played in Bussard’s basement. Part detective, part musician and music fanatic; Bussard entertains the filmmakers in the basement of his Fredrick, Maryland, home which contains 25,000 rare records. This film contains footage of Bussard relaying vital historic American music facts that serve as time capsules for lost musical idioms.

Bussard calls “rock & roll” the cancer of American music. His daughter tells a story of her father’s “old school” outlook on music when one day she brought a John Lennon record home, and Joe threw the naked black disc across the yard. This DVD also provides insight to Bussard’s singular radio shows.

Desperate Man Blues emerges as a priceless documentation on one of America’s greatest musical archivists.

A ugg boots clearance recent survey found that one out of five Americans teenage or older want an iPad. No wonder Apple is selling three million iPads a month. It's the fastest-selling single product in the history of consumer electronics. Most buyers are choosing an iPad as a supplement to their current computers -- for watching movies in bed, like I do, or reading books in my easy chair when there's nothing good on TV ugg boots clearance. The iPad pretty much has the personal side of computing covered. But what about the computer side? What about the tasks you do on your laptop or on your desktop computer ugg boots clearance? But I'm convinced that many of you would find the iPad a delightful replacement for a typical laptop computer, whether a Windows PC or Mac, if you mostly use a laptop for three typical functions -- e-mail, social networking (through Facebook, for example) and Web browsing ugg boots clearance. What about occasional word processing? Apple's word processor, called Pages, is outstanding on the iPad. (A bonus: It also works easily with Microsoft Word documents, both reading them and saving them.) If you need software that can show and create PowerPoint presentations, iPad software called Keynote can do that nicely. There's even an Excel-compatible program called Numbers ugg boots clearance. All three of these productivity programs -- called apps -- sell for only $10 each. Getting something equivalent to Microsoft Office for only $30 is surely a steal ugg boots clearance. There are many, either free or a couple of dollars, at the App Store ugg boots outlet. Could an iPad be your only computer? Not for long. It gets updates via free software called iTunes running on a standard computer. When you plug the iPad into the computer using a USB cable, iTunes transfers the updates to your iPad ugg boots outlet. (iTunes is also used to add music, books, podcasts, university lectures, TV shows and movies to an iPad.) But if my experience is a guide, the iPad can function well as a replacement for a laptop. If you buy one, be sure to get the Keyboard Dock and the Camera Connection Kit. Photos look spectacular on the 10-inch screen ugg boots clearance.
