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.


• Added Big Style #101 to Big Style Records discography.
• Added more information to the Bob Taylor post, thanks to Jimmy Hunsucker.

I'm glad to present you the brand new CRH comp "Hot Rockers and Country Boppers" containing 15 selection of C&W influenced Rock'n'Roll stuff. As usual, I also included some (hopefully) interesting liner notes about the artists and their records. Some of these tracks were never reissued, so grab 'em as long as you can!

Oh yes, thanks for this great compo! Also interested by the Ken Hammck story. I know "It's Now Or Never" for years (on tape), one of my favorite Starday tunes! Wondering that Hugh Lewis is on vocal.
Anyway thanks for all!
