“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.”

Jim Dickinson: The Man Behind the Console (Trailer)

Robert Allen Parker and Nan Hackman did a great job on their short documentary film, "The Man Behind the Console," about Jim Dickinson's life as a music producer. The film won the Hometowner award for Best Short Documentary at the Indie Memphis Film Festival. The only problem with the film is that there needed to be more of it! Good job, Robert and Nan. The Dickinson family thanks you.
