I hope you don't mind this. It's a common mistake with his age as misinformation was posted in 2013 and it circulated. His father was Mike Russo Sr and he died at 95. The guitar player in the videos is Mike Russo JR. and he was also a pianist. He does have an album out from Arlhoolie, but I think it's out of production although available on vinyl according to discogs... link
In 2018 Stefan Grossman posted a note from his daughter inquiring if there were anyone who had material or recordings as she was looking to make a retrospective presentation for him and she said he was at that time still alive and 80 years old. ... link
He toured with Fred Mcdowell and the Arhoolie album is "This Ain't No Rock 'n Roll". and also toured with lightning Hopkins.There's some more of him on LivinTheBlues Channel:
The Pye-International "Black Box" record player Prof Scratchy gave me on long-term loan, is set up in my loft. I usually play a few records every time I'm up there (eg. getting the Christmas decorations down in December, and putting back up again in January !)
Many thanks for the Dropbox thing instead, Mr Scratchy !!!
