I'm not sure how he eventually made it to America, but he was a fascinating character I'm so glad I got to know.

I also passed by, on my way to work, an African-American, blind street singer, who sat outside the 5th Avenue entrance to Harvey's playing his particularly beautiful interpretation of the 'Blues' and sold shopping bags. A Music Row producer, Felton Jarvis, came down a recorded him singing and playing one day and put it on an album. The album didn't sell enough copies to change his life and he continued playing the blues on 5th Avenue until his tragic death in a fire a few years later.

And by the way, the album won a Grammy!!!

His name was Cortelia Clark. I wish I had gotten to know him better. He serenaded me and others with some of the world's most beautiful music on my way to work.

Great story! The recording is proof that Nashville drivers knew how to use their horns, even back in those genteel times.

Great thread! Lived & worked in Nashville 95 - 98. I’m trying to remember a little Chinese restaurant near The Old School building at 1130 8th. Now it's the Scientology center but it used to be an advertising company Erikson marketing communications. I'd grad Chinese nearby and go to the fairgrounds. Anyone remember?

It's funny how 30 years ago it seems like Nashville had edible Chinese food. And now with all of this development and population growth, we have nothing better than PF Chang's.
