Bogue Chitto Flingding

My search for the music of home that turned up Bobby Lounge also turned up Bogue Chitto Flingding by the Hodges Brothers. It is also available at the iTunes Music Store. They recorded a version of “Carroll County Blues” by previously mentioned Willie Narmour. I had never heard of them, but I am familiar with Bogue Chitto. I am happy to find that string bands, usually associated with the hills, did exist in my home area further south.

I got my Bobby Lounge CD I Remember the Night Your Trailer Burned Down and t-shirt in the mail yesterday. It came from the UCM Museum with more packaging tape than anything I have received in years. The album has great barrelhouse piano playing. I did not know that anybody could play that way anymore. The lyrics are very entertaining although often inappropriate for certain ears.

    I have been over it many, many times, but never in it.
