Sleepy Labeef

I found out about Sleepy LaBeef only recently when a couple of his songs stood out on a compilation of rockabilly music I was listening to. He is one of the original classic rockabilly singer/guitar players. He was born on July 11, 1935 in Smackover Arkansas. He is 6'7" and has a very deep voice. Still making records (on Rounder) and touring extensively. I look forward to seeing him, I hear he comes around here from time to time.
