Notes:
In 1990, curators at the National Museum of American History began a project to develop a traveling exhibition about American music, and in the course of research, curators repeatedly returned to the Mississippi Delta area and Memphis, Tennessee to conduct interviews. A group in Memphis organized to raise the funds to complete the research, to acquire objects and artifacts, and the project ultimately became the Smithsonian-affiliated Memphis Rock 'n' Soul Museum, which opened in 2000 at 191 Beale Street.
Summary:
Audio and video recordings comprising the research for the Smithsonian-affiliated Memphis Rock 'n'Soul Museum. Interviews were conducted with musicians, recording executives and others. Interviewers include Pete Daniel, and Charles McGovern.
