Rythm Oil

Rythm Oil

by Stanley Booth




Booth travels to the funeral of master bluesman John Hurt with slide-guitar virtuoso Furry Lewis, a man steeped in Southern history. Here is Memphis, a small town still living through the traumas of the Civil War and yellow fever, inspiring memories of riverboats, medicine shows, murder, Elvis Presley, B.B. King, Otis Redding, the Bar-Kays, and James Brown.
