Memphis Minnie - Mother of Rock n' Roll

To hear more about her go to her MySpace site, kick off your shoes and sit a spell among her and her old time friends. Then, tell me if y'all don't hear a sewing machine outta her guitar on this version of "He's a Dirty Mother Fuhya." Can't ya just envision the scene in the factory when the boss is out and all the gals are singing?

If it weren't for hearing this downhome girl at 14, this down homegirl wouldn't be around today to tell y'all all about it.

Been thinkin' 'bout my movie
been thinkin' all night long

More about her and the American Eugenics Society soon.

RIP, Kid Douglas (aka Memphis Minnie), we'll git it all told.
