Smokestack Lightnin' Home Page -- The Blues Profile Page
I'm afraid the only photo I have of Billie McAllister is from around 1972, about twenty years after he recorded several blues sides for a small Nashville, Tennessee label. From 1952, the song "31 E. Blues" comes from the 2005 compilation shown at right, "Night Train to Nashville." I know of three other tracks from those years: "Walking in a Daze," "I Go For That," and "Well, Alright Baby." In 1972 Rudy Ray Moore, known as The Dolemite, produced a very, very x-rated comedy album for McAllister, called "What a Big Piece of Meat,"
