This website aims to inform you more about me, the author, and my publications together with Golden Crest Records. Our main aim is to send you rushing to your collections to play all those great records again!

 Golden Crest Records is an original independent label, founded in 1956; my three books are: "Record Makers and Breakers," "Rhythm & Blues in New Orleans" (originally “Walking to New Orleans”) and "South to Louisiana: The Music of the Cajun Bayous."

John Broven has just finished editing a book by Larry Simon on New York City blues, the first-ever on the subject, to be published by University Press of Mississippi, hopefully late 2021. Other contributions from Val Wilmer, Paul Harris and Richard Tapp, all past Juke Blues contributors.
