  1. Abe Diamond is the young man in the front, wearing a hat in the striped shirt, holding the harmonica to the right of his brother, Leo, in this photo. His birthday is actually August 22. My father Abe and my Uncle Leo played with Borrah Minevitch and His Harmonica Rascals before Leo left for his solo career. Thank you very much for chronicling them here. Much love, Dyan.

  2. Hey Dyan,
    I’m attempting to track down your uncle Leo Diamond’s music publisher, which used to be handled by Robert Diamond, Leo’s son. Any help would be much appreciated! Best,
