Summary: Bayless Rose is far more mysterious than Geechie Wiley, if that can be believed. While having one more side than Ms. Wiley in his oeuvre, nothing more is known about the man, not even if he was black or white! If anything, Rose's work shows the inanity of designating music of his time period as being either ", black", or ", white", , country or blues. ", Jamestown Exhibition", shares as much with the (white) Frank Hutchinson's bluesy slide guitar as it does with the (black) Mississippi John Hurt's ", countrified", picking.
