RE: beck the elder (was "here is...")

  British bands definately brought  black (and white) american roots music 
to the throbbing suburban  teenybopper masses-but Elvis and Carl Perkins 
Johnny Cash and Chuck Berry,and Link Wray did it first,and inspired the 
English cats. People like Fahey and Harry Smith and the Seeger family and 
the whole folk revival of the 50s and early 60s is part of why US blues 
records were even getting to England.I grew up in D.C. and heard people 
  Ray Charles, BB King, Bo Diddly ,Louis Jordan etc on the radio before 
Beatles  came to the US.
