* Like anyone else, I became fascinated by Washington Phillip’s story through the music. So, go buy the music.
* I backed into the research on this one when I should’ve just started at the source: Michael Corcoran’s amazing excavation of Phillips’ real story, as originally printed in Texas Monthly. There’s a lot of stuff that links out from his site.

* Lots of Washington Phillips.
* Starts with As Old Roads, by Goldmund.
* Don’t Worry, by (Memory Palace favorite) Zoe Keating.
* 1979 by Deru.
