Beale Street Saturday Night
Side 1 from Beale Street Saturday Night by Jim Dickinson's Legacy
In the 1970's, Beale Street in Memphis, Tennessee. had been
"urban renewed" almost into oblivion. The deteriorating
Orpheum Theater was standing empty and shuttered,
about to be sold. Beale Street Saturday Night was recorded
as part of a fund raiser to save it. Now Beale Street
is booming and the Orpheum Theater is restored to its
former gold leaf glory.
Listening to this album brings back Jim's effortless mastery
of the piano and his genius record production.
World boogie is coming! Enjoy!
