R.D. “The Real Deal” Olson pictured with his fiance, Linda Thompson. Thompson has been critical in the promotion of the “Momma I Miss Memphis” single through her contacts with Elvis Presley fan clubs throughout the world.
“Bluesman R.D. Olson pays homage to the King with ‘Momma I Miss Memphis. With the help of girlfriend Ms. Linda Thompson, they are bringing the Real Deal’s brand of blues to the Ouachita Mountains.”
“R.D. Olson returns with Momma I Miss Memphis, a song that sees Olson cobbling together several different styles into one song. There is an Elvis homage, a New Orleans-style funeral celebration mixed with some sweet rockabilly, and a Gospel-tinged ending bringing the song to a rousing conclusion. It’s a fun song that’s sure to make you sit up and listen, and maybe move around a little.”
“On his new track “Momma, I Miss Memphis,” acclaimed musical artist R.D. Olson pays tribute not only to Elvis Presley, but also the legends that made music their lives and made the love of music our home. In a humble and honorable praise of the “Memphis” sound, Olson names the greats, and brings his own talents to bear, with styling that spark of the nature of Blues, taking the music to the mountain tops.”
“R.D. Olson’s song “Momma I Miss Memphis” is a blast! It’s as if Elvis were living now and singing the blues, which would be a wonderful thing!”
“The R.D. Olson Blues Band recently released “Mama, I Miss Memphis” and to celebrate we have asked R. D.Olson to tell us about the track. Hearing is believing!”
