“There are cool cats and there are cool Memphis cats but no one, not
Elvis, not Jerry Lee, not even the Wolf came close to epitomizing Memphis
and cool like Jim Dickinson did. He was the Top Cat Daddy, an
inspiration, a mentor and my friend.

If you knew his music and understood his role as one of the links between
black and white culture and between blues and rock and roll, you know what
I'm talking about. If he is unfamiliar to you, now's as good time as any
to get to know him, even though he's checked out of the motel.”

Slideshow - Capturing Zebra Ranch

Last month, Brantley Catlette recorded at the Zebra Ranch and took some photos to mark the day.  The photos ooze the ambiance of the studio and the essence of Jim Dickinson as a deconstructionist, who said, "I just like to watch sh*t rot!" 

Watch the slideshow or click on any photo to go to the album.
