Book details rockabilly stars

Greenwood’s Mack Allen Smith is one of the few rockabilly artists to write a book, and it’s a good bet that he’s the only one to have written three. His latest opus is “Rock-A-Billy Rebel: Known and Unknown Stars I’ve Known” (Sunbury Press).

Smith, who made his first recordings at Memphis’ Sun Records in 1959 with his Flames, previously authored the memoir “Looking Back One Last Time.” His novel, “Honky-Tonk Addict,” is about an aging rockabilly star whose life was considerably wilder than Smith’s own.

Smith decided to write “Rock-A-Billy Rebel” to draw attention to the many musicians he’s played with over the years. The book contains 83 chapters on artists, personal anecdotes and well-researched background information, as well as photographs.

“I’ve got some of the people that I was fortunate enough to share the stage with, such as (Sun rockabilly artist) Warren Smith, he worked with me for several months, Ace Cannon and Jerrye Jay — he had a big hit with “Hello Josephine.”

“But then I had a lot of great pictures of people who didn’t have a big name and I decided to focus on some of these unknowns. They may not have been stars, but they’re stars to me.”

Many of the artists performed at Smith’s Town & Country Night Club, which he opened in Greenwood in 1971. He also recalls his childhood memories of local blues legend Mississippi John Hurt playing for him behind his family’s store.

While the chapters are relatively brief, together they provide an invaluable resource on the history of popular music in Mississippi from the 1950s through the early ’80s, when he retired from working with music full time.
