Matt The Cat & The “Juke In The Back” feature a look at one of most significant little record labels in history: Trumpet Records. Based in Jackson, MS, Trumpet only lasted for 5 years and only scored one national hit (Elmore James’ “Dust My Broom,” but they recorded some of the greatest delta blues artists.  Sonny Boy Williamson II (Rice Miller) began his career on Trumpet, while Arthur Crudup’s Trumpet sides came after his enormous success on RCA Victor.  Blues legend Big Joe Williams also recorded for Lillian McMurry’s little Mississippi label.  So get the “story behind the story” of Trumpet Records on this week’s “Juke In The Back.”
