Here's an interesting piece of southern political satire from the 1960s. The Cracker Crumble, a biting Southern political satire event, is (and was) an annual fund raising stage production for the Georgia Press Association. Over the years, Cracker Crumble has evolved into an exclusive black tie gala attended by newspaper publishers and editors, state politicians, lobbyists and public relations executives.

This obscure LP is sure to be of interest to regular attendees of the Cracker Crumble event, featuring Cracker Crumble pioneers Elsie Griner, Jr. and her brother pianist Geunie Griner. I haven't played the LP, but the great cartoon on the cover implies that the musical barbs are directed at LBJ, the Ku Klux Klan, Stokely Carmichael, Lester Maddox, segregation in schools, local politicians, etc...

There is no track listing offered on the cover or on the label.

PLEASE NOTE: Unless otherwise noted, all of the LPs we are offering are used. Our grading system for each LP is strictly visual, as we don't have time to listen to each record from beginning to end. Unless otherwise stated, there is usually a small price sticker affixed somewhere on the back cover.

The Sound of Building Coffins
by Louis Maistros

Signed copies available exclusively on the net here at Louie’s Juke Joint, just click this link to order!


"Louis Maistros has written a lyrical, complex, and brave novel that takes enormous risks and pulls them all off. He is a writer to watch and keep reading, a writer to cherish."
Peter Straub

"The Society of North American Magic Realists welcomes its newest, most dazzling member, Louis Maistros. His debut novel is a thing of wonder, unlike anything in our literature. It startles. It stuns. It stupefies. No novel since CONFEDERACY OF DUNCES has done such justice to New Orleans. If Franz Kafka had been able to write like Peter Straub, this might have been the result."
Donald Harington,
Winner of the Robert Penn Warren Award and the Oxford-American Lifetime Achievement Award.

“The Sound of Building Coffins is easily one of the finest and truest pieces of New Orleans fiction I've ever read.”
- Poppy Z. Brite

“One has to write with considerable authenticity to pull off a story steeped in magic and swamp water that examines race and class, death and rebirth, Haitian voodoo, and the beginnings of jazz in 1891 New Orleans...The plot is complex and magical, grounded in the history of the city, without being overly sentimental. There is a comfort with death as a part of life in this work that reveals deep feeling for the city and its past....Highly recommended for all fiction collections, especially where there is an interest in jazz."
- Library Journal
