MEMPHIS JUG BAND - Volume 3

MEMPHIS JUG BAND  - Volume 3
£12.99
CD / Product Number: DGF18

Memphis had been a wide open town in the late twenties and clubs like Pee Wee's. The Monarch and The Hole in the Wall catered to crap-shooters and policy players with bootleg whiskey. But the euphoria of Beale Street that had persisted for nearly 2 decades was soon to evaporate: the jug bands of Memphis fiddled and blew while Wall Street burned. Yet these 25 tracks from the Memphis Jug Band 1928-1930 remastered by John RT Davies, provide a musical portrait of a turbulent town and a troubled time, leavened with humour and spiced with irony! Listen and enjoy!
Personnel here include Will Shade, Ben Ramey, Milton Robie Charlie Burse, Hambone Lewis and Charlie Nickerson plus Memphis Minnie.
