    Folk Festival of Blues Musician Signed Album. This copy of the rare 1963 live LP Folk Festival of the Blues signed in ink on the reverse of the cover by Blues greats Howlin' Wolf (signing both his stage name and his real name, Chester A. Burnett), Muddy Waters, Sonny Boy Williamson, Buddy Guy, Willie Dixon, Otis Spann, Willie Smith, and Cousin Joe Pleasant. This set of signatures is made desirable by those of Dixon, one of the most influential Blues songwriters ever, and pianist-singer Pleasant. It is also one of the few albums known to bear the autographs of Burnett, Waters, and Williamson, as well as Waters' sidemen, Smith and Spann. The signatures were obtained in 1963-64, when these performers were touring Europe as part of the American Folk Blues Festival and the 1964 Gospel Caravan Tour of the UK. In Very Fine condition. Accompanied by James Spence Authentication auction LOA.
