Dan Penn and Spooner Oldham (via Memphis Jones.com)

Dear Memphis Music Lovers,

Spend a few short minutes watching this amazing video of Dan Penn and Spooner Oldham performing a song Penn composed with Chips Moman during a 30-minute poker game break in a hotel room in Memphis back in ‘66. Although it became a Top 10 single for James Carr in ‘67, NOTHING compares to these two legends playing it together acoustically. Every genre of American music can be found in this astonishing and soulful rendition of The Dark End Of The Street.

Sincerely,

Memphis Jones
