A warm, personal look at a neighborhood where the "lights never went out" and the music lasted "all day and all night". B. B. King recalls that Beale Street was "a place to learn, to make friends, it was a little world all of you own. There were always musicians who were willing to help you if you wanted to learn." Performers Rufus Thomas, Evelyn Young, "Gatemouth" Moore, Fred Ford, "Honeymoon" Garner, "Hot Rod" Hulbert, Andrew Chaplin, Jr., Booker T. Laury, Laura Dukes and others reminisce about life on Beale Street and reveal the camaraderie, the love and the respect musicians had, and still have for each other.
