Wonder Valley graphic by Jay Carroll printed on a vintage washed women’s muscle tee.
Made in the USA , By Midnight Rider.
Jay Carroll is a photographer, writer, designer and cultural enthusiast whose travels, special projects and design collaborations can be found at @onetrippass. A recent trek westward through these three locations inspired the series. New Mexico as home to the most sacred places in America and a great source of regeneration, Winslow where he recently saw Jackson Browne play his song Take it Easy (during his first time back since writing the hit) to a crowd of 200 in the backyard of the La Posada Hotel, and Wonder Valley as the birthplace and spiritual hub for all things One Trip Pass.

Country Music Gets Soul: Linda Martell is first black female to sing at Grand Ole Opry (Ebony, 1970)
Before the advent of Bobbie Gentry and her Ode To Billie Joe, country music — like rhythm and blues — was “special music” enjoyed by a somewhat limited, dedicated group of fans. Few of those fans were black. Country music experts, however, feel that it is natural that blacks would enjoy success singing country and western. Says Shelby Singleton, who records Linda on the Plantation label: “Rhythm and blues and country music are the most parallel types of music.” It’s the working people who make up the listeners for both.” And Charley Pride has said: “Country music, the blues and my people’s spirituals are the only true American music.” It has been a very happy “musical marriage” for Linda, who, by all standards in the business, has far exceeded expectations for so short a time. Singleton observes: “Based on reactions to her first two records, she’s gonna be a big country and Western star.”
Real Gone Music is releasing Linda Martell’s Color Me Country for the first time on CD in June.
Haven’t heard of her before? There’s a song and video of in the archives.
“Most of the time, I’d rather go get a hotdog than write a song.”
