Memphian Andrew Booker makes his debut on the Southern Soul scene with his new EP “I Miss My Mom N Dad”, featuring eight first-rate shots of soul and blues. From the opening “Bingo Lover”, where he complains that his woman loves bingo more than him, to the title track which will move anyone who has lost their parents, “I Miss My Mom and Dad” walks the line between blues and soul. There are traditional blues like “I’m About to Get Old” and “Don’t Tell Me”, and uptempo romps like “20 Hard Days” and “Policeman Coming ‘n You Going to Jail.” While there’s little here that would be unexpected, this is a well-done debut from a new voice in Memphis blues and soul.

It concerns me that of all the majorette teams and alumni majorette teams that performed at the South Memphis Majorette Jamboree yesterday, only the one in this clip had drummers that worked with them. The rest of them did their routines to CDs that the DJ played for them. That not only isn’t as much fun, but it deprives young men in our community of an opportunity for wholesome recreation, fun, and musical development.
