Shreveport Songs: PETE MCKINLEY & COUNTRY JIM - Shreveport Blues (Specialty, 1952)
Announcing a new post over at the Shreveport Songs blog...
Though recorded in 1952, it took twenty-one years for Pete McKinley and Country Jim's "Shreveport Blues" to reach the record-buying public. However, having only appeared on one compilation album released in England in 1973, I suspect few people have been able to enjoy this song that name-checks a local intersection (McNeil and 4th Street) and mentions a "cold chill" inducing woman.
