Dancing at the Brotherhood Sportsman’s Lodge far out in the boondocks behind Como, Mississippi. There are dice tumbling in a leather dice horn, chicken frying in a big iron shillet, and girls turning tricks in the back room while hatchet-faced revellers sway to the drone of electric blues. Rural Burnside, the artist with the guitar, has just returned to the lodge from a week of sharecropping in the surrounding cotton fields. The busy life of a farm hand affords little time for laundering one’s pants.
