“I Wish I Was In Heaven Sitting Down”
a six hour long radio documentary about the Mississippi Delta Blues

Written, Produced and Narrated by Frank Matheis, Melon Productions, New York

The 6 hour long program series takes its title from a song by Mississippi Fred McDowell. It is a historical documentary series that covers the rise of the rural, country blues of the Mississippi Delta from the 1920’s through the migration of African-Americans to points north in the 1940’s. It includes the period up to development of the urban sound known as “the Chicago blues”. The documentary concludes with a look at the acoustic blues today, in the 21st Century, and spotlights some of today’s musicians in this genre.

‘I Wish I Was in Heaven Sitting Down’ …should be required listening for anyone interested in American music…because it brims with powerful, potentially life-changing blues. You cannot hear this music and remain unmoved.”
- Eric Pooley, TIME Magazine

Hugo,as you appeared confused as to how to define Watermelon Slim and as you contradict Scott Mac who has a higher knowledge base than your limited self,may I suggest that you take instruction from Greybeard,who has an intimate knowledge of Country Blues.

As Dave Gonzales said..."I like Blues in my Country and Country in my Blues."

Jafa saw Watermelon Slim during his US travels,which was before Watermelon had played Narooma.

Jafa regarded him as being "too country" for his tastes.

"An artist never really chooses when and where they will play.It is for promoters to make offers.It comes down as to whether tours are financially viable." Quote John Mayall.
