    “Cox' estimate of audience sizes they played in those days: “. . .two-three hundred people.”

    Billy Cox: “. . And-ah we travelled around the chitlin circuit, and these clubs were called the
    chitlin circuit* because they served fish and chitlins and that, those were the two-ah, eh meals
    that they served. And there were sold some of ‘em had pot-bellied stoves in the middle of ‘em.
    An’-ah, they were Winchester, Manchester, Tullahoma, Murfreesboro and. . .”

    [*Cox only mentions 4 towns and only gives a clue to two possible venues. All are south of and
    not too far from Nashville, in mid Tennessee. So not exactly ‘The Chitlin Circuit’. He was about
    to mention at least one other town they played but was unfortunately interrupted by the
    interviewer. Ed]

    Joe Chambers (interviewer, founder of Musicians Hall of Fame, Nashville): “Hendrix and Cox
    played the clubs on Jefferson as well as the club circuit from Murfreesboro to Tullahoma.”

    “They played all over middle Tennessee”
