Press Release :
Names of superstars, who attract thousands of black families with folding lounge chairs and plastic coolers to their regular blues picnics and outdoor concerts in the city parks of Jackson, Mississippi or Birmingham, Alabama, hit makers, whose songs are played day in, and day out by local blues stations. Who cares if these names are scarcely recognized by a handful of people north of the Mason-Dixon Line? Who cares if they are completely ignored by national radio stations? Who cares if they are marginalized as so-called "Chitlin' Circuit" phenomena by the media? Their southern soul is more than just a regional variation of rhythm 'n blues. Much more: their music, like no other, represents the psyche of the Black American South - somewhere between Jesus and Staggerlee, Baptist church services and sex, the juke joint and the motel.
