One More for the Ditch
Jim Rorie is a north Mississippi Delta Blues man. The early years took him all over the country and after playing blues clubs in Chicago and Los Angeles, he settled in Memphis, the Home of the Blues. The nightclub scene in Memphis was thriving in the early 1960's and Jim Rorie, as the leader of a group called 'Daddy Rube and the Renegades', played them all. His maverick mix of Blues, Rock & Roll and Country was a perfect fit. Some say you have to live the blues to understand them. Jim has paid his dues. Listen to the lyrics in the songs he has written and you can tell that he has lived them. He's been a rebel without a cause, a renegade and a rounder. One thing has always been apparent..... Jim's love for music, especially the blues.
