SUGAR DITCH REVISITED - a modest album with a huge cast of the crème of Memphis musicians joining the PANTHER BURNS.
Jim Dickinson produced the record alongside Roland James,
pioneer guitarist on the early Jerry Lee Lewis sides, twirling the knobs
at the control board. This record featured two songs Dickinson had
found on tapes discarded by STAX during the last days of the studio's
existence. Sir Mac Rice an ex-Falcon penned "Tina, the Go Go Queen and
Money Talks". For these numbers Andrew Love and Ben Cauley were brought
in from the Memphis Horns to add that lush and signature lilt of the
laid-back 'Memphis sound'. Alex Chilton played his new guitar - a rusty
Mosrite he'd found in a pawnshop on Poplar Avenue, The articulate
bassist, Rene Coman, came up from New Orleans for the sessions, Ross
Johnson whipped the skins, and a bevy of girlfriends sang backing
SHAKE RAG – 1986 three stalwarts: Jim Dickinson producer,
keyboardist, guitarist, Ross Johnson on percussion, and Tav Falco, on
guitar and voice. There is a raw primitivism howling from these tracks
and an unbridled intensity not heard from the band in recorded form
since our 1st album, Behind The Magnolia Curtain. It is the kind of
record PANTHER BURNS can make as easily a falling off a log.
