All Messed Up !

Drac says 'Well, I feel like livin'
And I feel like dyin'
I don't know, I guess I'm all messed up.'

Contrary to a widely-held belief, Jess Hooper is not a pseudonym for Charlie Feathers !
Recorded in 1955, the two tracks here are the thin line between blues & country (yeah, that’s what we call rockabilly, stupido – ah ok, sorry).
Anyway, it’s an original Meteor Recording! The Meteor label was part of the original Memphis constellation. Started in 1952 by the Bihari brothers to record blues, they soon branched out into C&W and rockabilly and although the label was short lived (gone in 1957) they made their mark.

Enjoy your meal.

Hey, Rev,

Are you having problems with since they adopted the new interface? It won't upload for me in Firefox or show the file list in IE; I have to use both to upload and link to anything.

And, uh, they haven't responded to that last email I sent about it (a few days ago).

Yup, I had the same problems at the beginning but it works fine now. I sent an email too by the way.

Heh heh - If I had to make the choice I'd take my time over it, for sure, and I'd quibble a LOT!

Any one who hasn't had the opportunity can check out Charlie Feathers on Meteor and wonder about this raging controversy for themselves ;~)

Keep em coming Rev. You is blowing my socks off!

Mr.Barf, If someone would ever force me to make a choice I would rather chop his head off.
(just joking...) whatever.
Jesse Hooper sooths my soul.
