Great press release fact checking disasters of our time.

This, from the lead singer of the Alabama 3:

"Not since Robert Johnson dropped thirty eight tracks in one night in a Minnesota hotel room, in 1938 and defined the blueprint for Delta Blues has the genre been so radically (messed) with".

Factual error #1 - He recorded 42 tracks.
Factual error #2 - Over five different recording days
Factual error #3 - During the day, not the night
Factual error #4 - In Texas.
Factual error #5 - In 1936 and 1937.

I'm waiting for the album to judge the truth of the secondary clause.
