When Luther was five years old he came to me with an idea, "Mama, when
daddy has his fiftieth birthday, let's have a big party for him and have
one naked lady jump out of a cake!" Jim and I thought that was a fine idea,
so when he turned fifty we had a big party and two (half-naked) ladies
jumped out of a cake, to the delight of all. Here's a picture of that fine
event held at Sam Phillip's Studio. (Thanks to Knox and Jerry Phillips
and Roland Janes).
Now, Luther is a grown man and his daddy is in heaven, jellyrolling! I'll
bet Jim is grinning just as big up there, proud as punch because North
Mississippi Allstars and their new cd, Keys to the Kingdom, will be
featured on NPR's Weekend Edition, this weekend. Don't miss it! If you missed it, here's the link.
World boogie is coming!
