    PETER REDVERS LEE was born Saturday, July 2, 1960, Escourt, Natal, South
    Africa, and is one of the co-founders of FAT POSSUM RECORDS. After
    graduating in 1985, from the University of South Africa, he received his
    MA. in 1987 from the University of Mississippi. He then succeeded
    Jim O'Neal (b. 1948/NOV/25, Fort Wayne, IN) as editor of LIVING BLUES from
    1987 to 1991.  Peter Lee and fellow Living Blues writer Matthew Johnson
    began FAT POSSUM RECORDS in 1991. They were later joined by John Herman,
    keyboardist with Widespread Panic.  Their philosophy is "to capture the
    feeling and sound that they heard when they went to a juke joint".
    Robert Palmer, ex-New York Times critic & author of "DEEP BLUES", is also
    involved, having produced R. L. Burnside, CeDell Davis and the new Junior
    Kimbrough.  According to Chris Morris' recent Billboard article,
    "Mississippi Labels Tap into Weath of Local Blues Talent" (June 11, 1994),
    FAT POSSUM RECORDS expects to deliver 6 CDs this year and 10 in 1995.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY, PETER LEE!
