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.

Forgotten Tales and Stories of...

...one of the most unknown country singers of all-time: Slim Dortch. I know I slowed down posting drastically so I sat down today after work and finished this fine compilation. I enjoyed Dortch's rockin' "Big Boy Rock" so much I started collecting his music, though I still do not have all of his 45rpm records (thanks to Neil Scott for helping me out on this). I'm pretty sure this is the only place where you can get that much of Dortch's music. I have to admit that I'm not sure if this is his complete work, though. Hope you'll enjoy it!
