BTW the reason Jaimoe isn't in the arrest photos we've all seen is because he was locked up in the "colored" jail.

The segregated deep south. Yes Ronnie Watergate didn't really bother me but segregation did.....sweet home Alabsma.

What I find hard to fathom was that Muscle Shoals was able to thrive in those times while being at the ground zero for racism and bigotry. Goes to show the power of music.

Well it was Butch Trucks who said the reason Jaimoe wasn't in those arrest photos of Duane, Gregg, Dickey , Berry and himself is because they dumped Jaimoe in the colored jail.

Yes music didn't seem segregated back in the 40's, 50's and 60"s. There is a video of the Buddy Rich quartet from 1959 on the Lenny Bruce TV show and the bass and trumpet players are black. And man can they play. The bass player is walking the dog with that upright. Can somebody link it? The one that says "better audio" is best.
