Papa Don McMinn is a Memphis Music legend. He was instrumental in the rebirth of the Home of the Blues: Beale Street in Memphis Tennessee. During the mid-1980s, Papa Donís band had the "house gig" at Rum Boogie on the corner of Beale and Highway 61. Everyone who was anyone was there, and when the big names came to town to record or perform, there was only one place to go - to see Papa Don McMinn and his Rum Boogie band.
 

Dubbed ďThe Pale Prince of Beale Street,Ē Donís special brand of Southern Music is a concoction of Delta and Boogie Blues. But on this album, Good Country, Papa Don reaches deep into his roots, revealing that heís right at home in traditional Country Music as well. Indeed, Donís wonderfully soulful performance of the twelve tracks here calls for an encore.
 

Don has performed all across the planet, and heís worked and recorded with Memphis Slim, John Mayall, Bobby "Blue" Bland, and Albert King, among others. Some of the notables whoíve made cameo appearances with Papa Don's band are Joe Walsh, Gregg Allman, Rufus Thomas, Jon Bonjovi, Billy F Gibbons, and Eddie Floyd.
