    I am sure there's better versions of "That's All Right Mama" around. Back in the early 1970s, Crudup stayed overnight with us up in Manchester. Nice guy, reminiscing about what it was like to be touring the US South in the 1930s. Had stories of having to run for his life when one of the other blues players he was touring with got out of line. For me, it was nice to be with the guy whose music ("Mama") provided Sam Philips with the "White guy playing black music" when Elvis started goofing around in the Sun Studios with Crudup's hit. You can still feel the hair rise on the back of your neck when you hear the power that Elvis brought to the tune. Crudup wasa decent blues player. Not one of the true greats. But he was in at the birth of White Rock Music - and it was his music that inspired the young Elvis.

    It's pure insanity that those great songs are still copyright protected!
