The stone’s inscription reads: Booker W. ” His date of birth might actually be 1906. Blessed with a powerful voice and powerful arms that got a lot of sound out of a metal guitar, White first recorded in the 1930s, doing both blues and gospel. ” The song became a hit, but White had gotten into a scrape and been imprisoned at Parchman in the meantime.

Inside, people sit and drink and talk to their friends. This book includes jooks that regularly feature live music—or have atmosphere, an older clientele, and play recorded blues. But ask around. Places open and close abruptly. You might find one we missed, or one that just happens to have live music the weekend you’re in town (and the one that usually has live music just might not have it while you’re there). DANGER?
