Stop and Listen - Mississippi Sheiks

Old-timey? Ain’t no such thing no more. Dylan: “ …the Mississippi Sheiks, a little known de facto group whom in their former glory mustve been something to behold. rebellion against routine seems to be their strong theme. all their songs are raw to the bone & are faultlessly made for these modern times (the New Dark Ages) nothing effete about the Mississippi Sheiks.”

Modern times indeed.

Oddi wrth y brawd

Take the Smith & Greil trail to the old, weird America.
