NO CONDITION IS PERMANENT [Episode #65 ~ 05-02-15]


Prohibition notwithstanding, Paramount made accommodations for the musicians’ taste for whiskey. The studio paid a young woman who worked as a waitress in the hotel next door where the musicians were lodged to ferry drinks to the studio. As House recalled, the whiskey was used as an incentive to expedite the recording process: “Anytime that you end a piece, when you end it she’s right there with cups about that high. With your whiskey—that old, real good dark whiskey, smell good, taste good, and make you so high you rock like a rockin’ chair. She’d be standing right there, waiting for you to come and get it. And the other guy want to hurry up and get to play his piece so he can get his.”  The result according to House was predictable: “All of us would be high as a Georgia pine.” Laibley himself would sometimes have white hillbilly musicians, who after all also hailed from areas where stills were common, bring him “mountain dew” when they came to Grafton.

– Daniel Beaumont, Preachin’ The Blues: The Life And Times Of Son House
