Sonny Burgess Arkansas Rockabilly

One of the last living recording artist from the glory days of Sun Records. These guys came right out of the Arkansas Delta. I'm glad they picked Memphis to record instead of Little Rock. I tried to find early videos of the band but can not locate any. Check out a few song clips.

Arkansas Delta BBQ And Blues

The Tubehoarder txt me early this morning to do BBQ breakfast in the Delta. The Jones family has been doing BBQ in Marianna since the early 1900's.

After a few sandwiches at Jones we moved on to Craig's in DeVals Bluff. One of the best hot BBQ sauces ever.   
 The divider in the roof was to divide between blacks and whites yet it was black owned. Glad those days are gone.
Looks are deceiving 8-)
 

 The Tubehoarder knows all the best spots in the Delta. Off the side of the road is Pie Shop...
There were only a few different kinds of pies left. No chocolate and no fried pies today... Sigh...
Close as I could get to the Pie Shop kitchen.
Next time your in the Delta and you see a road side shack advertising food just stop. In fact the worse the sign and shack the better the food. 
Can't post about the Delta without blues.

Arkansas Cattle Serenade

This cracks me up.
Cows love horns.

What do the French and Arkansans have in common?
They play horns to cows.

45rpm The Long Road To Lost Music - Local Indie Movie

When I saw the title for this movie it obviously got my attention. Then upon further investigation it turns out it was filmed in Arkansas and Tennessee. It is weird seeing people you know in a film but a pleasant surprise when they are doing a top notch job. There also some of my favorite record stores in this film and some I will have to find. Hey Jason do you have a record store list for this film?
"45RPM" was written and directed by Arkansas native Juli Jackson and funded in part by the Ozark Foothills FilmFest in Batesville,AR. It's the first of three films that have been awarded grants by the festival as part of the Arkansas Indie Film Initiative.
45 RPM is an independent feature that follows Charlie - a young city artist who seeks a connection between her work and her deceased father's music. She teams up with Louie, an obsessive record collector from Memphis, and begins a search for a rare 45 recording from the 1960s Arkansas garage rock scene that takes them on a journey across the landscape of the South.

Louis Jordan Father Of R&B

Louis Jordan the father of Rhythm and Blues is from Brinkley, Arkansas. When I talk Arkansas musicians to people in Arkansas most don't know who he is... so sad. Check out this site http://www.louisjordan.com/history.aspx and the youtube videos below.

1935 Arkansas Street Musicians

I'd love to hear these guys playing on the street. Oh well another stop for the time machine when I get one.
