Odd(or maybe not, considering...) that the only "professor" Fered McDowell I can find any info on was connected with Iowa State university, and absolutely NO info could be found on any of his bibliography.

However, "I Do Not Play No Rock & Roll" is the title of a 1969 LP released by a bluesman known as "MISSISSIPPI" Fred McDowell.

It would be appreciated if you could provide either a link to the dissertation, or "copy and paste" the text, or leggo our chains. wink

Making noise isn't the same as creating anything or having something to say.

Yeah, but when I "google" Fred McDowell, all I get is "Mississippi" Fred McDowell, who DIDN'T write any such '59 dissertation, but released an LP by that name TEN YEARS LATER.

The only "professor" Fred McDowell I could find was a professor at Iowa State university, and no bibliography of any of his work could be found. That's why I asked if you could provide any link or other pertinent info on the individual. That dissertation sounds interesting. IF it does indeed exist, and I'd like to read it.
