His life was short but his art is long. Jim Dickinson's legacy thrives in Mike McCarthy's splendid video shoot at the Zebra Ranch, home of Jim's dream with Jimmy Crosthwait packing a gun, the pretty girls prancing around the flaming cross. "Down in Mississippi." Who's that lovin' on Jim? You'll have to see it to believe it.
R.I.P. dear husband, knowing your legacy lives on. - MLD

Jim's legacy carries on with a huge event for his upcoming book, Search for Blind Lemon. 17,000 words from his memoir will be excerpted in the December issue of the Oxford American magazine. This is the music edition of the magazine featuring Tennessee music, including Jim's song off DIXIE FRIED, "The Judgement." The issue will be available on discerning newsstands December 5. It will come with a Tennessee music double-CD. If anyone subscribes before then, they'll receive the music issue (winter 2013) as their first of four issues in 2014. This is a great literary magazine- best I've ever read, thanks to the editor, Roger Hodge and a great staff. (Thanks, Max). You can subscribe here: https://secure2.palmcoastd.com/pub/oxam/subAll.asp
