Bluesology Gets A Manager And A Record Deal, Making It Big?, Bluesology Adds A New Section

After dropping out of school, Reggie concentrated only on his career. He took a job with a music company on Denmark Street. Denmark Street in London housed most of the music industry's publishers. Reggie's job was with Mills Music, an American firm whose clients included some very famous people, such as Fats Waller, Duke Ellington, and Leroy Anderson. Reggie didn't interact with the performers but instead worked in the warehouse, filling orders, packing boxes with sheet music, and preparing tea for his boss. The job was not glamorous or fulfilling, but it made Reggie feel like he was part of the music world, a feeling he truly loved.
