11:06 Beale Street Caravan
Featuring Paul Thorn who is from Tupelo Mississippi, and like Elvis, was heavily influenced by gospel music early on, but he likes to rock. He’s reputed to be one of the best songwriters in the South and tells lots of stories about how his songs came to be, and there’s a feeling that his father, in all senses of the word, is not far from his life. Paul Thorn was recorded aboard Delbert McClinton's Sandy Beaches Cruise out of Florida.
