This discography is a non-commercial labor-of-love and is in no way associated with any business firm.
All I know about the resp. artist's / label's musical output is shown on this page. To purchase out-of-print records I recommend an ebay, gemm or google search. And - sorry for that - I have not the time to answer any e-mails asking me about further information, let alone duplicating out-of-print recordings I happen to own.

thanks to (the ubiquitous) Alan Balfour, 'john4y' (Fred Bolden), Ken Kandu and Michael Morgan for additional info / scans

** "John Smith Hurt, who was to become Mississippi John Hurt, [...] was reportedly born on March 8, 1892 (grave marker), March 16, 1892 (Social Security Death Index), May 7, 1893 (some family members), or May 8, 1895 (draft registation). The most likely date, according to his grandnephew Fred Bolden who remembers celebrating his uncle's birthday, is March 8." (Philip R.Ratcliffe: Mississippi John Hurt - His Life, His Times, His Blues.- Jackson (University Press of Mississippi) 2011
Other - obviously even more dubious - dates can be found here:
July 2 1892 (www.msjohnhurtmuseum.com/mjhbio.html) and July 3 1893 (www.bluesworld.com/blues/0703.html)
Fazit: Birthday March 8, 1892 (as on grave marker) most likely !!!
