From Hound Dog: 

Eight of my 10 picks were recorded in St. Louis. The Henry Townsend and Roosevelt Sykes two-CD set, and the Johnny Shines CD, are both live recordings made in 1973 at Graham Chapel at Washington University. These performances were arranged by the Missouri Friends of the Folk Arts, of which Leroy Pierson was vice-president. These recordings have never been released until Leroy made arrangements for same. Johnny Shines was a pal of Robert Johnson, and Henry Townsend and Roosevelt Sykes are both legendary figures in the St. Louis music scene. The quality of these performances and recordings is outstanding.
