On the road to Memphis

... great elegance of this establishment. Sadly there will be no photos of the cracked and soiled netty. No one in their right mind would ever place their posterior on the seatless khazi. Also worth noting is the sort of polythene ceiling , which must be a fire hazard. Nevertheless the beers were cold and great if you like Coors Light, and the music and ambience were second to none. As one of the reviews written in marker on the ...

... set in an old plantation where some bohemian types have come up with the brilliant idea of using a load of old cabins as a B and B. It's called Shack up inn or some such . They don't make you pick cotton or anything. We then went to Bluesberry Cafe where we saw a piano playing woman thumping **** out of an old Yamaha and not singing pretty. But we also encountered Razorblade, an authentic Delta Blues man who was sporting a sharp suit and a very nifty hat. ...

... By the way the food was really good, especially our steaks. Off to the Ground Zero Blues Club, part owned by Morgan Freeman. It's open mike night (anyone can get up and perform) but Josh "Razorblade" Stewart is the main act. A local, he is in his late 60s, very slim, walks with limp and a cane, a Vietnam vet, and has a wonderful, smooth voice. One of the amateur acts is a pretty good harmonica player who looks like a bank teller who ...

Memphis to Clarksdale

Before leaving Memphis, we stopped by the National Civil Rights Museum located at the Lorraine Motel. The second floor balcony of this motel was the site of Martin Luther Kings assassination back on April 4th 1968. The museum was recently redone and expanded and was preparing for a grand reopening this weekend on the 46th anniversary of his death. We could see only a few exhibits, but they were profound and well done. Looking at the old photos from that fateful day, that section ...
