The Pride of Mississippi
The post title is a play on words on the artists name and the album title.
I'm not that sure what your average Mississippi rednecks take would be on a black Country artist.
That however never bothered Charley Pride too much and he went on to have a stellar career.
Picked up, as you would imagine, in a charity shop for a couple of quid. Worth that for the title track alone. The rest are not all that special.
I've told this story before but I unfortunately missed the opportunity to see Charley's brother Eddie (he plays all Charley's tunes) live in Ullapool as I was working on that particular evening.
Some other time perhaps
