James Booker Petition

Several weeks back I had an entry about James Booker's wonderful take on "St. James Infirmary." Yesterday, Homeofthegroove posted an item about a petition "to have Booker's filmed 1978 Montreux Jazz Festival performance released on DVD for the world to see... Currently, there is no video of the New Orleans piano genius available commercially." Sounds like reasonable request to me, so I signed, in the all-digital way that it is now evidently possible to "sign" a petition. If you'd like to do the same, here it is.
