Symposium in Blues, RCA Victor PRM 235. 1966. A Presentation album from Merck, Sharp and Dohme. A blues album to advertise Elavil HCI antidepressant. Great idea!

Acts on the album are Leroy Carr, Washboard Sam, the fabulous Lonnie Johnson, Walter Davis, Leadbelly, Wingy Manone, Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, Mildred Bailey, Artie Shaw, Ethel Waters, and Joe Williams. Notes by the editor of New Encyclopedia of Jazz, Leonard Feather. Symposium in Blues for sale
