DJ Hairy Larry Presents Cottonmouth Playing July You’re A Woman
From The Archives Of Something Blue 2024-03-17

Thanks Marty, today we’re going to hear some southern rock from a band that was big in Arkansas in the seventies.

Sometimes I look around for just the right music to play on From The Archives Of Something Blue. And sometimes the music comes to me.

Andy Fulkerson got in touch with KASU with some songs recorded in 1982 and Marty Scarbrough knew immediately that I would be interested. So, thanks to Andy for working with me filling in the details and bringing the Cottonmouth story to life.

I met Andy in the nineties when he would bring his Hammond B3 with Leslie speakers to Craighead Forest Park to perform with The West Finch Blues Band. They always delivered a strong blues set and were one of our most popular acts.

Before there was The West Finch Blues Band there was Cottonmouth, a southern rock group with many of the same musicians that are still playing with West Finch today. They were a gigging band from 1973 to 1976 and they opened for Styx and Lynyrd Skynyrd.

Andy remastered three Cottonmouth songs and now we have them in the Arkansas Roots library and in the Something Blue Archives. So you can listen to Cottonmouth anytime, I will include a link to the archive page at the Something Blue website,

Cottonmouth recorded the songs in 1982 at Terry Lawrence’s studio in Jonesboro. Playing at the session were Larry Rothgery, lead guitar; Mike Tuseth, rhythm and lead guitar and vocals; Wendell Gilbert, bass; Rick Fulkerson, drums; Mike Montgomery, lead vocals; and Andy Fulkerson, organ, piano, and vocals. Sonjia Fulkerson sang on two of the songs, including singing backup vocals on “July You’re a Woman”, the song we’re hearing today.

Also recorded at the session were “I Must Have Did Somebody Wrong” and “Sin City”. I’ll be featuring these songs on Something Blue this weekend.

So now, recorded in 1982 right here in Jonesboro here’s Cottonmouth singing “July You’re a Woman”.
