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.


• Jack Turner recordings available here.
• Update on Les Randall acetate.
• Thanks to Bob more info on Bill Harris.

Sleepy LaBeef set

One of my musical heroes and a legend in rockabilly music, Sleepy LaBeef's deep voice can be heard all over the world for more than 50 years now. He began as a local Houston performer around 1955 and since made everything a musician could do: recording for independent labels, for major labels, scoring hits, touring and achieving status as a legend around the world. I compiled a couple of his younger recordings - two of them are live cuts. Listen to them and you'll know why he's an "idol" for me! (By the way: sorry for being so unreliable in the last weeks... I will try to keep my post schedule running, but I won't promise :) )


track list:
1. Low Down Dog
2. Tore Up (live)
3. Big Boss Man
4. Half a Boy and Half a Man
5. Ring of Fire (live)
