Around this time last year, we were in an all-out frenzy over our Mississippi music issue. We scoured the web, dusty crates of vinyl, and forgotten compilations for music that moved us. We found hundreds of songs that fit the bill and scores we deemed worthy for our annual CD.
Greedy record companies, defunct labels, long-passed artists, and other dead ends and complications narrowed our list of contenders, but we'd like to share some of our favorites that didn't make it on the CD with you now in this space before we begin our Louisiana music hunt in earnest.
Thanks, Mississippi! It was a daunting honor. Happy listening.
