On our last Sunday, Ken, Nick and I hired a car and drove down to Clarksdale, Mississippi, where we met Pinetop Perkins, heard Willie "Big Eyes" Smith and Bob Stroger, and visited a juke joint.

 

 

Ken & Nick chat with Pinetop Perkins at Hopson's Plantation - Pinetop wasn't playing that day because his Daddy always advised him not to work on Sundays.
