“Blues Central”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

This is more than a shop....it's a vital resource and treasure chest for anyone interested in blues and American roots music. First impressions are of the quirky folk art that fills the walls that also happens to capture the very essence of the blues culture....then you'll dig a little deeper to find a library of books, magazines, recorded music and so much more. If you're a genuine music lover of any genre...don't miss it if you're anywhere nearby.

“Good stop”
Reviewed 14 March 2014

Interesting items to shop for. Filled with lots of information about the blues in Clarksdale. If you are wanting to know more about the blues and want to buy something for your special someone along the blues trail I would recommend stopping here.

“BEST music store in the MS Delta!”
Reviewed 21 February 2014

The owner Roger is a walking encyclopedia when it comes to the blues. His store has wonderful funky local art, great books on the Delta and a record collection that is amazing. Cannot say enough good things about this store.

“Cat head is a must see!”
Reviewed 6 February 2014

While visiting Cat Head I had an enjoyable chat with Roger Stolle the owner and creator of cat head.

Roger is extremely talented, friendly and passionate about Clarksdale blues music scene.

He has helped breath life back into the Clarksdale blues scene at the same time peaking more interest world wide.

Roger has also written a book about the history of the Mississippi blues, which I was lucky enough to get a signed copy from his shop.

Cat Head has a unique music vibe and I thoroughly enjoyed my visit here!
