- Rev. N.L. Williams playing blues guitar while "Blind" Johnny Brown plays a resonator guitar
- Photographed on October 13, 1978.
- The resonator guitar, which is a type of dobro, that Johnny Brown is playing was likely modified to look the way it does. One possibilty is that Brown used a radio cone speaker and inserted it into the dobro, thus allowing it to resonate and change the sound. Or it may simply be an off-brand wood bodied Dobro/Resonator guitar, which are fairly common.
- Performed for the American Folklore Society meeting in Salt Lake City, Utah.
