The Chitlin’ Circuit: Celebrating a Secret History of American Music

By John Morthland, Contributor

For years, the Chitlin' Circuit - the network of mostly-Southern, mostly-rural clubs where black artists performed from the 1930s into the '60s - has been an elusive element in music history, often referred to but rarely examined. But with The Chitlin' Circuit and the Road to Rock 'n' Roll, Memphis music fan and historian Preston Lauterbach brings it out into the open. Boy, does he bring it out into the open.

They Say All Music Guide

Document’s ninth volume devoted to the complete chronologically reissued works of Roosevelt Sykes covers a four-year period beginning in November 1947 and combines 20 Victor, Bullet, and Regal recordings with four titles that feature Kentucky-born guitarist John Brim and his wife Grace, a convincing singer who is also heard playing drums and harmonica. A perusal of the other identified participants reveals a healthy contingent of seasoned Chicago sessionmen, including trumpeter Johnny Morton, saxophonists Bill Casimir, Walter Broadus, and Oett “Sax” Mallard; guitarists Willie Lacey and Emmanuel Sayles; bassists Ransom Knowling and J.C. Bell, as well as drummers Judge Riley, P.F. Thomas, and Armand “Jump” Jackson. By the time he cut eight sides for Regal in 1949, Sykes had been making records for a full 20 years. Unfazed by changing patterns in pop culture, he matured with dignity by assimilating some of what was in the air and subjecting it to his well-established, straightforward approach to singing and playing the blues. What you get in this package is a fascinating prologue to his adventures in the ’50s (see volume 10) and his extraordinary comeback in the ‘60s, ‘70s, and early ‘80s. – arwulf arwulf
