What's Old is New Again

Juke Joint

I am fuddled about everything with this new Blogger! Did I inadvertently agree to this? I can not up load pictures. It sucks. Reminds me of the old days at AOL-J-Land. I couldn't upload pictures for some time. Seems such a long time ago when you were required to know something about HTML, uploading to servers and then downloading...blah blah blah blah. I like it when you press a button and it happens!

So its begun again. I will muddle through with this and prevail I suppose.

So.....I have had company the past several weeks. Lots of company. I have been all over Memphis and North Mississippi over exposed, overpowered  and immersed in the music scene. it's been wonderful but I can't include any pictures!They look pitiful.

I am living in a place where the air oozes music. I have discovered it's easier to borrow CD's from the library and find some remarkable recordings from obscure bands such as Mud boy and the Neutrons. Ever heard of them? Me neither. But while listening to the disc, "it came from memphis" they jumped out at me and grabbed my attention. I thought, "I have to tell everyone about this band!" and so I googled them.

I have a great ear, or great music can not be overlooked. The guys are legendary around Memphis and I realized my education here has just begun.

Elvis? Only the tip of the iceberg. As they said/say "All roads lead to Memphis".
