Roy Dunn was one of the last links to the rich Atlanta pre-war blues scene; he had played with Curley Weaver., Buddy Moss and Blind Willie McTell. Know'd Them All is his only album. "This, his only album", Lowry wrote, is as complete a representation of the talents of Roy S. Dunn (a/k/a James Clavin Speed) as could be compiled, and his talents deserve another listening." Dunn passed in 1988.

Further On Down The Line - Roy Dunn

Roy Dunn was born in Eatonton, GA. on April 13, 1922. At the age of nine he took interest in the guitar. Soon afterwards his family moved to Covington where he was given some lessons by Curley Weaver. In the 1930's he led a musical double life performing gospel with his family group The Dunn Brothers as well as the All National Independents, the Rainbow Gospel Four & The Golden Gospel Singers. When he wasn't busy with his service to the Lord, he could be found jamming around Atlanta with Buddy Moss, Curley Weaver and Blind Willie McTell. Dunn settled in Atlanta in the 1950's and in 1956 he was convicted of manslaughter. Upon his parole in 1960 he found work running machinery for the Georgia Highway Department. In 1968 Dunn was a victim of an automobile accident that caused severe injuries to his wife and himself and killed their baby. It took him a year to recover and he was never able to return to work. He was still able to play music, however, and he performed around Georgia and North Carolina up until 1976. Roy Dunn passed away in Atlanta on March 2, 1988.
