Welcome to Mellow's Log Cabin. This blog's purpose is to supply information on a diversity of American southern music - ranging from country, blues, old-time and folk to R&B, rock'n'roll and rockabilly. I regularly present my research results about artists, labels, shows and also give guest writers a chance to publish their texts here on occasion.

Sleepy LaBeef - Roots
I was very surprised but happy, though, when I discovered that ol' Sleepy had recorded his latest album. The human jukebox, as LaBeef is called often, issued his last record four years ago. But this time, he did not cut the songs in his typical rockabilly style, but more with acoustic instruments and slower tracks. "Roots" is an album with songs that influenced and inspired LaBeef. His voice is as deep and good as it could be and songs like "Cotton Fields", "Amazing Grace" or "In The Pines" suits him very well. Highly recommended!
