Recordings

But the biggest surprises for non-Memphians come from more obscure sources. Linda Heck's "Dig My Own Hole" (opening with a guitar line right out of the Who's "A Legal Matter") sounds like a great lost nugget from the early days of punk, while the underrated Simple Ones offer ample evidence that they deserved the same level of acclaim as the Grifters. My personal favorite, though, comes from secret blues master Wilroy Sanders, whose live recording of "Green's Lounge Shuffle" delivers the kind of effortless groove that could only come out of the Delta. Most important, this kind of raw soul sounds like it's cut from the same uncompromising cloth as the Grifters' lo-fi indie rock. One senses that's exactly what Willmott had in mind.
