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.

Johnny Cash set

A set of Johnny Cash recordings. "Hey Porter" and "Folsom Prison Blues" are re-recordings for Columbia from the early 1960s, while "Big River" and "Cry, Cry, Cry" are 1961 TV live recordings. "Five Minutes to Go" was the soundtrack for the movie of the same name, in which Cash played the role of a crazy killer. Last but not least, "I Got Stripes" is a 1959 Columbia recording. I choose these recordings because I think they are much overlooked by fans, for example the great "Five Minutes to Live" (my favorite here) can't even be found on YouTube (which has nearly everything of Cash). Hope you enjoy these!
