I always thought that Archimedes said that when he climbed into a tin bath of water and noticed that the level of water suddenly got higher. He also had a water "screw" named after him but less said about that the better. [grin]judith wrote:Thank you, Alan, for yet another great read. Also, it was quite fun for me to go back and read the thread from the beginning and be reminded of the wealth of information I have soaked up from the forum, how much I have learned from this site. I remember when I first joined the forum and began learning about people like Alexis Korner - of whom I had been sadly ignorant - and from such knowledgeable people like yourself. Eureka!
note: 'Eureka' is a local colloquialism ('I have found it!' attributed to Archimedes) for discovering gold. We do have gold in the nearby rivers).
By 1977 his Radio One R&B Show had metamorphosed into Alexis Korner's Blues & Soul Show the first of which received major stick from the recently launched monthly magazine, Black Music. Their stance incensed me because his mix of blues-African-soul music was very much in line with what Oliver had been attempting to convey in his 1970 paperback Savannah Syncopators: African Retentions In The Blues. I fired off a lengthy letter to the Beeb stating as much. Did I hear anything? Did I hell.
