Rather than restrict Memphis (vocals and piano), Jazz Gillum (vocals and harmonica) and Arbe Stidham (vocals and guitar) to a pre-arranged programme with each number being repeated until all errors had been removed, it was suggested that Memphis free associate. After a few numbers, it was clear that a definitive pattern was developing - the odyssey of an American Negro blues singer. These are travelling blues, and at the suggestion of Memphis, it's called Memphis Slim USA.
