McTell, Blind Willie

1901-1959 blues singer, influence on Bob Dylan.

He appeared under several record names: Blind Sammie, Georgia Bill, Pig'n' Whistle Red.

Dylan has subtly referred to Blind Willie McTell in the song
Highway 61 Revisited; "Georgia Sam, he had a bloody nose".

I noticed two bits you might want to add to Expecting Rain.  The influences page 
doesn't mention the Blind Willie McTell song which included the line 
"Lay across my big brass bed." It's "Rough Alley Blues" on 
the Definitive Blind Willie McTell via Legacy/Columbia.
