Papa Mali Extols Mark Rubin
Mark Rubin arrived in Austin on August 28, 1987, and left for New Orleans last spring. “OK, so like, I sent my new CD to Papa Mali and asked if he’d give me a nice pull quote for my press kit,” emailed Rubin. “Instead, he wrote a whole review.” Malcolm “Papa Mali” Welbourne, also a former local, did better than that. He captures Rubin as perfectly as the new LP art.
