Desperate Man Blues

Desperate Man Blues 

Desperate Man Blues is streaming for a very limited time in its entirety (without the DVD extras) on Pitchfork TV. In this film director Edward Gillen tells the story of renowned 78 collector Joe Bussard. His library of 25,000+ rare sides– blues, gospel, folk, and more– forms an essential archive of American music from the 1920s and 30s.
