One thought on “Photos by David Horwitz

  1. Awesome pictures! So happy to see Precious Bryant in the collection! I knew her back in the 1980s’. I managed an auto tire service store just 15 miles North of her home. She didn’t drive, but she had a car and a chauffeur! She was very sweet, honest and humble; never said much about her music (she was living it). She had a charge account with me and never missed a payment. I was watching the movie “Black Snake Moan “ recently and I heard Precious singing “Morning Train “ and I couldn’t believe my ears! I waited for the credits and sure enough I had indeed heard Precious Bryant!! I so wish she was alive so that I could go the
    15 miles to tell her! Precious Memories has an additional meaning for me.
