It is truly an amazing read about an amazing time in the world and in music.

Very cool that Detroit has a living version of Nica!!! Five Stars for Her ***** nice article!
Poor Butterfly wasn't written for Nica. That song goes way back to the twenties I think. And all those Pannonicas on your list are the same song, just played by different guys. And Little Butterfly is Pannonica too, but with lyrics.

Other than that, good list.
