Wow! Thanks for the Sam songs. He is 84 in these videos and not featuring his ability to play two harmonicas at the same time, both in his mouth, nor to play a harmonica literally stuffed in his mouth while singing out of the other side of his mouth and playing guitar accompaniment. He was a great man who passed away last November. Born in 1917, as you said. He gave me my first guitar lessons as a kid at Isomata in Idyllwild, California. We became friends (eventually including my whole family) and he used to show us all of his new aquarium museum exhibits at the Scripps Institute.
