DRIFT Travel magazine - - America -

A shop win­dow re­flects a col­or­ful mix of Delta char­ac­ters found in Clarks­dale, Mis­sis­sippi, a small town that claims to be the “cross­roads of cul­ture and quirk­i­ness with a heavy dose of the blues”. Visit the ho­tel that was once a hos­pi­tal that re­fused to ad­mit the in­fa­mous blues singer Bessie Smith be­cause of the color of her skin con­tribut­ing to her death, dine at a restau­rant co-owned and fre­quented by Mor­gan Free­man or visit the Cross­roads where folk­lore claims the leg­endary blues artist, Robert John­son sold his soul to the devil in ex­change for his tal­ent of play­ing the guitar.

THAT MIS­SIS­SIPPI SOUND, THAT DELTA SOUND, IS IN THEM OLD RECORDS. YOU CAN HEAR IT ALL THE WAY THROUGH. - MUDDY WATERS -
