It has rich bottom land and cotton flourished there as did sharcropping. There were plantations up and down the Brazos River. If Mississippi had its dreaded Parchman Farm then Texas had the spectre of Uncle Bud Russell and the Midnight Special. Both were equally feared by black men in Texas. Yet within its borders, black music was vital and had a particluar style and sound all its own.
