Sample text

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. Upon his release in 1940, he recorded again, with the record company bringing in Washboard Sam to modernize the sound. Those recordings are highly regarded by blues fans, but White temporarily left the music world after making them.

On the other hand, some casinos present big-name soulblues acts in concert in their theaters. Call the casinos for schedules or check the listings in the Memphis (for the Tunica area), Greenville, Vicksburg, Gulfport, or Biloxi newspapers.

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? Walking into any bar where you are a stranger can be unnerving. And the apprehension can be magnified when you’re far from home and don’t dress or talk like the other people there, who all seem to know each other.
