South to West-Iron and Gold. This CD album has taken this unsung National
Hero over 50 years to produce. Schoolboy Cleve is known worldwide
and is considered one of the greatest Harmonica players that ever
lived. He played with other legendary artist like Lightnin' Slim,
Sonny Boy Williamson, Muddy Waters, Buddy Guy, Grammy nominee Ron
Thompson and many others. This CD album is a compilation of songs
from 1954 to 1998 original recordings and unreleased material.
"NO WIND, NO RAIN, NO WINTER STORM COULD STOP THIS ALBUM"
During production of this CD, Hurricane Katrina and Rita hit New
Orleans, Louisiana and other parts of the South. Schoolboy Cleve
had one tune recorded live, from a performance with a trumpet player
named Marcus, from New Orleans who happened to be blind. But had
love and vision of the city and its sound of music, which you can
clearly feel when you hear him on this CD.
He played with so much feeling; it truly captured the New Orleans
, Louisiana sound. This is his story told in music, CD title track
Friday Night (The New Orleans, LA sound).
A GREAT CD TO HAVE IN YOUR COLLECTION! Collectors Edition
Note: Schoolboy Cleve's family plans to donate a percentage of profit
from sales of his CD to Cancer research.

STORY ABOUT THE
OVERSEER’S HOUSE AT THE PLANTATION
In the 1960’s Schoolboy
Cleve's mother Mrs. Susie (Martin) White Born 1894 lived there.
As descendents of the Slaves the real story is yet to be told on
how this remarkable lady raised 9 children without an education
but with the grace of God! Please, make a reservation to see the
Magnolia Mounds Overseer’s
House is a double-sided house, original to the plantation c. 1870.
It was found a few blocks away and moved back to the plantation
proper. The house is furnished as if the overseer and his family
are still living there and includes an early 19th century sick room.
Overseer’s House, original to Magnolia Mound, was found in
the surrounding residential area and moved to its present site.
