Description

Bluesman. Sharecropper. Church deacon. Civil Rights activist. Hayes McMullan should be a name on every Blues aficionados� short-list and thanks to the preservation fieldwork carried out by one of the genre�s greatest researchers some 50 years ago � it might soon be.Born in 1902, Hayes McMullan was discovered by the renowned American roots scholar, collector and documentarian Gayle Dean Wardlow. Wardlow, author of the seminal blues anthology Chasin� That Devil Music � Searching for the Blues, may be most famous for uncovering Robert Johnson�s death certificate in 1968, finally revealing clues to the bluesman�s mysterious and much disputed demise. Moreover, in his tireless and committed mission to preserve the Blues for future generations, he captured McMullan�s raw talent on tape and on paper. Wardlow recorded these sessions, transcribed the songs and now, writes the sleeve-notes for this landmark release. Wardlow and McMullan met by chance on one of the former�s record-hunting trips, in Tallahatchie County, Mississippi, in 1967. Having introduced himself to McMullan on a hunch, it turned out this unassuming elderly man had not only heard of Wardlow�s idol, Charley Patton, but had played alongside him in the 1920s, as part of a brief musical journey that took him from the plantation to the open roads and juke joints of the Depression-era South. Striking up a friendship that was deemed unorthodox in 1960�s Mississippi, Wardlow traveled to McMullan�s sharecropper�s shack and convinced him to play guitar for the first time since he quit the Blues for the Church in the 30�s. �Hayes was playing like no one I had ever heard,� Wardlow writes with amazement. Wardlow visited McMullan on a handful of occasions, always taking his recorder, a guitar and some whiskey with him. It was during these visits that Wardlow captured � with surprising clarity � the songs that make up Everyday Seem Like Murder Here. Hayes McMullan passed away at the age of 84 in 1986, his talent and legacy largely unknown. �Reflecting now on our brief time together, I marvel at the small glimpse of something much larger I was lucky to have captured,� writes Wardlow. �The few old snapshots I took, the handful of tunes we recorded, and his brilliant performance of �Hurry Sundown� captured on film are all that�s left of the musical legacy of Hayes McMullan, sharecropper, deacon, and�unbeknownst to so many for so long�reluctant bluesman.�
