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 in Spain
Sleepy LaBeef in 1992 in Spain. It's amazing for me how a singer could create such a vital und full sound with only a bass player and a drummer as backup musicians. LaBeef on lead guitar and vocals is the real deal. He does a good version of "Walkin' Slowly", which he recorded in the early 1960s, and a version of Bo Diddley's "Who Do You Love", which is the better song for me here. Nice driving beat and great guitar work by the Human Jukebox!
