Without being able to cite where, I wanted to advise that there is biographical info out there on B.T.Wingfield, including interview with him by blues researcher(s). I can't for the life of me remember where I read it... likely some years ago... in LP liner notes maybe. If I remember right, he was quite young, age 16 thereabouts, at the time of his earliest Paramount accompaniments. "I thought I was cute" definitely was verbatim in the text I read of him, then in middle age and responding to an interviewer, about activities of his youth.
