Thanks for posting that, Randy. Very interesting, and timely given that we've just been discussing Hayes McMullan here. I look forward to further installments.

Those are two beautiful performances.  McMullen has a very pleasing voice and sings and plays with a nice unhurried groove.  Thanks for posting them.

Randy, thanks for posting all these great videos of your interview material and songs from Hayes McMullan. You can tell that he really loved those two signature licks that we learned for "Looka Here Woman," they appear regularly in his other songs.

Mr. Wardlow mentioned as one of his projects (I'll bet he has dozens in various stages) cleaning up the tapes from the McMullan session. From what I can tell from the vids you posted, it shouldn't be too hard to clean them up. We had someone post two Charlie Patton tunes that he cleaned up with remarkable results (unfortunately, they had to be taken down from the site where he posted them). There's a lot of great software that's available to hobbyists like us for those who can't afford super high-tech studio time.

Randy, it's not necessary to post the same message and video in different topics (I removed the duplicate) - people will find it as most of us use the "Recent Unread Topics" link (which picks up individual posts).

Thanks,

So what do you guys think so far?  ???

It will help me on the edits of the next hours of video that we are gathering to assemble in to a history of MS Delta Blues for all to be able to share with you guys.
You can help me focus on topics and facts that you guys want captured for eternity from Mr Wardlow, he is an endless supply of information and loves to share his story with others .. ...
And this is our chance to preserve history... Please take part...

I didn't realise you were still in the middle of making these.
I've been enjoying them ... my thanks to both of you. That bit about Patton's grave was interesting!

Yes, published in the very final issue of Blues Unlimited (April 1988, pps 8-12) One Last Walk Up King Solomon Hill. The jokey title sounds like something dreamt up by one of the editors, they were prone to such. I'd happily stand corrected though.

One of the illustrations is a letter concerning the KSH Community and the KSH Baptist Church. This is in response to a 1986 query from Gayle to E.B. Wall rural mail carrier of Sibley, La post office. Interestingly Mr Wall is writing on paper the masthead of which reads Bayou Inn Restaurant, Inc.

Perhaps Gayle has made this article available elsewhere.

The Prologue of "Chasing That Devils Music" contains a few pages on King Solomon...
Pages 2-8, I believe it is...

I'm on the other side of the Atlantic from my library, so I can't confirm this, but doesn't "One Last Walk Up King Solomon Hill appear as the last essay in Chasin' That Devil's Music?
