Cassettes of the Malcolm Smith Memorial Service are available. The cassette captures the music and tributes to Malcolm that were offered up on that day along with a studio cut of Malcolm's group "Cantiga" playing "Como Poden", and "Someday I'll Be A Bluebird", which was co-written by Malcolm and Linda.
A brief Biography has been added for those needing information on Malcolm for other publications. Return jumps back to this site have not been included so that the Biography can be printed and used as it appears. Please use your Browser's "Back" button to return to this page.
Below is a photo of the cast bronze plaque that has been made with contributions to the Malcolm Smith fund.
consider these pages "under construction" and subject to change .... so
please visit often. As we need extra pages, the jumps to them will be added
at the bottom of this page ... you may wish to check
that out before you leave. We urge you to participate in making this page
a place to visit where we, his many friends, can refresh our personal store
of the generous spirit Malcolm personified.
We have also begun a Discography of Malcolm's recorded works. It is currently available for viewing on the Discography Page. We are actively seeking as much input as possible to complete this work. If you know of an album that Malcolm played on that is not listed, please E-Mail us with the particulars.

If you have pictures of Malcolm (and captions to go with them) and/or tributes and stories that you would like to share with his many friends, please scan them and attach them to an E-Mail message. We will post the pictures with the understanding that they will be freely available on this site for download for personal use only. Please send them as large as possible. They will be resized for publication, but the larger the better for our archives.
For those of you who have been asking, Malcolm died of "left ventricular hypertrophy" ... a cardiac condition that is difficult to diagnose, strikes suddenly, can be present for years with few or no symptoms, and is almost impossible to treat even if detected.
Please send us
your ideas and suggestions ... this page is here for family and friends
to remember Malcolm by.
|Pat Fowler (Malcolm's brother-in-law): this is one of our favorite photos of Malcolm. It was taken by Mitch Lawyer in the mid 80's in the Heights, Houston.|
|Karl Caillouet: The reason why I chose this one for the memorial on the studio website page is that it is my all time favorite photo of Malcolm. It was taken by Dalis Allen many years ago and has hung in a framed collage of family photos in our hall way at home. I've seen that look on Malcolm's face so many times that I like to think that I can tell you exactly what he was thinking when it was snapped.|
and the next two are from Karl and Linda's archives: Malcolm
playing Hercules for the camera ... this was taken in front of Bill Hayme's
house in Little Rock, Arkansas ... circa 1983.
Malcolm, Nanci Griffith, Linda Lowe and Karl had all rendezvoused at Bill's house for a gig that night at the Faded Rose and we all gathered in the front yard for pictures and to take advantage of a gorgeous Arkansas day.
||This is from that same day ... Linda Lowe's "wonder dog", Roland, was the equipment guard on that trip. Malcolm and Roland had a special relationship.|
||Malcolm looking particularly pleased with himself ... he's obviously just laid down an excellent fiddle track in the studio. This was taken in front of the old studio building in the Heights.|
Here are the Cypress Swamp Stompers in 1974.
(Pat Plumlee, Malcolm, (Pandora), Becky and Pat.)
This Cypress Swamp Stomper photo is from the early 1980's. We all dressed
up and went out to Memorial Park (Houston) for the photo. (Mike Hogan,
Becky, Zeke Zuelke, Malcolm and Pat)
