Walk The Dog

Rufus Thomas was an iconic performer who quite literally did it all—his career straddled all the major musical forms that emanated from Memphis between the 1930s and the 1970s.  He toured with the Rabbit Foot Minstrels in the 1930s, he was an early DJ at the first black radio station (WDIA) in the 1950s, and he holds the distinction for charting the very first hits for both Sun Records and Stax.  Thomas recorded “Walking The Dog” for Stax in 1963, though our version owes a big debt of gratitude to the arrangement played by Ramblin’ Steve Gardner and the Jericho Road Show/Jake Leg Stompers boys.  Hats off to Rufus Thomas for giving us the most modern song in our repertoire.
