Florence Bird Project
This is the first live CD by the Delta Children Blues Duet, Mary & Cleo. It was record live at the Gold Dollar Bar in l998. The Gold Dollar Bar is the kind of place where you watch your guitar, and hope someone on the door has a gun. Only a few poeple were present for the show. Guitar and vocals were done by Mary. Cleo not only played bass, but was the in-the-pocket drummer. Mary Luckey Thompson is a renegade of a songwriter. She makes her own rules,.. Her songs are *homemade-without-shame. What you hear is honest music. The blues is more than *he done me wrong*, or he is so low-down-and dirty. For example-* Have you ever been *Homeless*? Maybe you didn*t know where you were going to sleep? Have you lost your job due to the *Corporate* blues? Do you know what it means to *Drive in the Chicken Lane.? If you are driving (DWP) driving while poor you may understand. Mary & Cleo thank you for supporting their efforts..
