The late Roosevelt Booba Barnes
- mp3 -
Booba Barnes was a highlight of the Deep Blues documentary. Owner of The Playboy Club in Greenville, MS. His only album, Heartbroken Man was the first recorded for Jim O'Neal's Rooster Blues label and is long out of print, which is a gawdamn shame. Barnes relocated from Greenville to Chicago in 1990, where he achieved some success, but was struck by cancer and died in a Chicago nursing home in 1996.
