· Fat Possum Records, the Oxford, Mississippi-based
label that set a new standard for raw blues and rock &
roll, commemorate their 25th anniversary with a run of reissues including the first-time-on-vinyl release of some of their groundbreaking blues catalogue.
· “When Blaze, who was still Depty Dawg to us, sang at
our dining table back in 1976 and 1978, he would be of a temper that was still juicy and ripe from his time in Whitesburg, GA., when he fell in love with his muse
Sybil Rosen, and they had lived in a tree in the woods.
To me, these songs you have here are the summary
of his time of rediscovering a happy innocence in Sybil’s arms. Our baby son is lovingly included at the
table. Here, also, you find his innocent curiosity taking
him to the threshold of the Dark World that he was
beginning to discover and would soon get lost in.
· “Our portable Uher tape recorder, an excellent
machine for field work, was brought out by my wife for those occasions. I would never have thought of it, because I only wanted to be washed in the live moment. Oh, we all thank you Margery!
· “In my life there’ve been many occasions when I
experienced intense and wonderful live moments.
Depty Dawg, at this time in his life, could create the best such moments, like a warming flame. With extreme and loving care, we are honoured to bring him home to you.” - Billy, Margery, and Basil Bouris
