Memphis Coffee House

I recall the Bitter Lemon. Played there with the Solips in the mid-60s, as did blues guitarist Bill Barth. And the Yardbirds played there, shattering the folkie world with Jeff Beck and 11 amps.

This could be the Pastime Coffee House that I think was on Madison Ave. in an old house. I saw the Hammer Singers there.
