One of our readers, Larry Amato, recently sent us this query through Comments box on the MississippiBluesTravellers.com page on Muddy Waters House:
“Where is the remnants of the house now? I was in Clarksdale back in the 90’s the day they were dis-assembling it and supposedly bringing to a museum.[ Note: It is now in the Delta Blues Museum in Clarksdale].
There was a film crew there who filmed me playing some blues before they took the house down,,,.. I was the last person to play live music at the house..
any info would be appreciated..
We asked Larry Amato if he had any photos from that day and he sent us these photos of Muddy Waters House being disassembled at Stovall Farms, outside Clarksdale, Mississippi, on 6 May 1996, prior to being moved to the Delta Blues Museum in Clarksdale.
Another reader, Rick Hagedorn, wrote the following comment in the Dialog Box on our Muddy Waters’ House web page:
“When Muddy Waters cabin was moved from the Stovall Farms to the Blues museum, there was a crew from New Orleans that filmed the taking down of the cabin. Was this film ever released anywhere? Do you know the name of the film or the film crew? Thanks in advance.”
Does anyone anything about this film and/or the film crew? We haven’t seen this film and we weren’t aware of it until Larry Amato and Rick Hagedorn mentioned it in comments on the website.
If you know anything about it please let us know by leaving a comment in the Dialog Box below.
