Been in a jail a few times back in my younger days just petty bullshit...

DUI...not the big deal it is today
public intox
disturbing the peace.....fighting
reckless driving

.....all a few hours in a holding cell until bailed out, then paid a fine, probation.

I do remember staring at that toilet stool just sitting there, a roll of tp on the floor. No way in hell am I taking a dump in front of all these derelicts, yep, a little prayer.

Anyway, how about some jail/prison music?

The original Black Betty was recorded on a Texas prison farm.



Johnny Cash's Folsom Blues is the greatest train/prison song, this would have to be second...



.....Huddie Ledbetter aka Lead Belly killed a man in Texas so off to the infamous Angola Prison in Louisiana. Alan Lomax who worked for the Library of Congress was wandering the south (30's) looking to record anyone with talent. This included churchs (gospel) and prisons. Lead Belly was discovered in prison, he actually sang his way out of prison, hard to believe but true.

By the way Midnight Special is a little remembered cover of Delta player Cryin' Sam Collins.

The song I learned how to play the harmonica. Gus Cannon 's father was a slave, he talks about what got Jimmy The Greek in trouble.

Music freak here, and burned out with being behind cold steel bars. So instead of cluttering the board up with music threads, will keep all my stuff in here.

I start way way back with them primitive blues and jazz, my music library is immense well over 10,000 records/tapes/CD's. Yep. 20's, 30's, 40's, 50's etc etc is covered. Into everything but the opera.

My mood right now.....






If ya want to join in cool, but......don't post stupid BS that screams ...little kid here acting stupid.....ok?
