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.

Down the Mississippi Line

• Christie - Yellow River
CBS 4911 (German pressing), 1970

I picked this one up last month at a flea market. "Yellow River" of course is the hit song everyone knows but the real gem here is side two with "Down the Mississippi Line." A real great song, I hope y'all enjoy it, too. I wrote some info on Christie some time ago, so I won't go into detail here. "Yellow River" reached #1 in the UK, #2 here in Germany and #23 in the US. The record featured here is a German pressing, released in April 1970 on the CBS label.

Also visit Jeff Christie's website, some great photos there.
