An abandoned old house in the Upper 9th Ward features some fetching outsider art.
We have to wonder what the painter’s possible connection is with Shorty Long, the Birmingham-born musician who authored “Devil With The Blue Dress” way back in 1964.
This was the first song ever released on the Soul label, a subsidiary of Motown.
Mr. Long never achieved fame with his debut and drowned in the Detroit river a mere five years hence.
We’ll leave the reader to decide whether white women are the devil.
