Thread Name: Origins: Deep Elem Blues / Deep Ellum / Deep Elm
Subject: RE: Deep Elem Blues (?)
One terrific version of “Deep Elm Blues” was recorded by Josh (Buck) Graves and Kenny Backer on a Puritan release called Bucktime; I think it was produced by Dave Samuelson.

I used to have to travel to Dallas on business and one of the places I'd go was Deep Elm. Today it's like a Soho area; an odd mix of head shops, great restaurants, jazz, tatoo parlors and art galleries.

In Dallas, it's written Elm but pronounced Elum.
