Percy Mayfield; Poet of the Blues

by Bart Bull
(from Details)

A man who is downhome and urbane in the same instant knows more than most. The man who wrote "Lost Mind," "Wasted Dream," "Nightless Lover," "Memory Pain," "Life Is Suicide," "The River's Invitation, " "I Dare You, Baby," "You Don't Exist No More," and "The Big Question," knows more than most, and wishes it weren't all true.
