This only applies if you are walking about New York City (foolishly believing that spring is just around the corner), but a story I wrote about Lead Belly obsessive John Reynolds (whose lifelong enamoring of the man recently resulted in Steidl's massive tome Lead Belly: A Life in Pictures) is in The Onion this week. While the hefty book is a tactile delight, another sweet aspect of doing this interview is that Reynolds graced me with a Danish Souper Bag, which is ideal for toting non-Lead Belly records around town.
