    Cox' estimates of audience sizes at this time: “. . .two-three hundred people.”

    “. . 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,
    Murfreesboro, Tullahoma. . .”

    [*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”
    Frank Zappa: "Rock journalism is people who can't write interviewing people who can't talk for people who can't read."
