Memphis Stomp

(Mississippi Mud Steppers)  Off Square Books in Oxford, Mississippi plays host once a month to Thacker Mountain Radio, a live public radio show, and it was here I first heard the Jake Leg Stompers.  The Stompers hail from Bucksnort, Tennessee (yes, there really is such a place) and I found this song on one of their recordings.  It originated as a tune by Alabama piano-banger Cow Cow Davenport—“Cow Cow Stomp”—and eventually made its way to Jackson,  Mississippi, where Charley McCoy and Walter Vincson recorded it under the title “Jackson Stomp” as the Mississippi Mud Steppers.  We brought it home to Memphis, and it gave us the title track for the record you now hold in your hands.
