It’s amazing how quickly history piles up on you. Delta Moon has recorded six CDs since 2002. In an effort to tidy up around here, we’ve decided to drop the price on the first four CDs — Delta Moon, Live, Goin’ Down South and Howlin’ — to only $9.99 at our website store.
Here’s a quick story and a giveaway. As an element of the back cover of our first CD, Delta Moon, Flournoy Holmes used a 1930s scenic postcard. He didn’t know the place in the picture, but I recognized it at once. My brother-in-law grew up half a mile from there, and my friend Bob used to live in a 200-year-old house a stone’s throw away. Once Bob sublet the house to an Italian movie company. He pocketed a little cash and his landlady got her house painted and the floors redone. Then Bob had to move when she sold the house to a young couple. According to the neighbors, soon after moving in the couple decided to go to a local drive-in and watch an Italian slasher film. They spent the rest of that night in a hotel.
So here’s the giveaway: The first person who can identify the spot in the upper background of this picture gets a free Delta Moon T-shirt of your choice. (Family, former band members and Bob are of course excluded.) Please e-mail your answer to firstname.lastname@example.org.
