Commemorative Booklet
on the occasion of his 50th Birthday

and Screamin' Jay Hawkins, among many others, and in 1977 an aural documentary of
Memphis' Beale Street, Beale Street Saturday Night, which featured performances by
Sid Selvidge, Furry Lewis and Dickinson's band Mud Boy and the Neutrons.
He has also worked with Ry Cooder, and played on Dylan's album Time Out of Mind.
