J.D. 'Cast' King was born in 1926 and 'Saw Mill Man' was his debut album (in 1955 he and his band recorded a few tracks at Memphis' legendary Sun Studio).

Very much in the tradition of Johnny Cash (an obvious comparison, but bang on the money!), King's songs have glorious titles to match their intoxicating content; with 'Cheap Motel', 'Wino' and 'Numb' sounding just as sunset-dusty as you'd expect.
