-- It Happened In Mobile --

Meant to be a pointer to the historically pivotal collision of several styles, both black and white, at some time in the distant past,

in that part of the gulf coast from New Orleans to Montgomery, which bred a lot of innovation that was widely disseminated

from that part of the country and very influential for a long time.    Not exactly the birth of the blues, but the birth of something

which slide guitar and harmonica players cherished and promulgated in all directions, and it sounded a little like this.

At some point in my life, I remember calling it the "dirty blues."
