AllMusic Review by

A truly impossible album to rate in any conventional sense, For Segregationists Only is a straight CD reissue of 1960s album that collected ten single sides from the Klan-based Louisiana record label Reb Rebel. The music ranges from hard country and weepy recitations to comedy skits. Some of the selections are aggressively racist (Johnny Rebel's "Kajun Ku Klux Klan," Son of Mississippi's "Flight NAACP 105"), while others are merely patriotic or expressions of right-wing political views (Happy Fats' "Veteran's Plea"). Reb Rebel was a fascinating fringe label that produced some of the most politically provocative right-wing protest music made during the Civil Rights era, although, unless you have an interest in cultural studies (or are a white supremacist), you will have no use for this music.
