Jimmy Ellis – live in his hometown Selma, Al June 8, 1985!

 

Jimmy Ellis did rarely perform in his hometown, Selma, AL – but this is a cassette recording from one of the times he did! It was a benefit show for Meadowview School and Jimmy’s mum and dad were also honored from stage for their effort to the society. Fair sound but really great performances and some really RARE songs! Two cassette tapes!.
