A part of the Music in American Life series of books, Working Girl Blues presents forty original songs that Dickens wrote about coal mining, labor issues, personal relationships, and her life and family in Appalachia.

Excellent video and sound quality and booklet has biographical notes and notes on the performances. So that said, here is Bobby Bare's children's record combined with his Gospel record from"This I Believe," plus a few rare singles and album tracks. Bobby Bare fans will be in for a real treat, as well as Shel Silverstein fans, and pretty much any fans of oddball - outlaw country.
I'm not going to say that Bare is such a transcendent artist that most grown ups will want to sit around and listen to his children's songs, but how many kids songs have lines about drinking beer and accidentally getting gravy on your guitar strings? I guess if you are a big fan of Bobby Bare Jr. The Gospel and various other tracks will be more appealing to those who aren't kids or smart-ass radio DJs. Good stuff, glad to see compilations like this coming out on strong labels that are going to give you extensive notes and great sound.

This set features both sides of every single issued by Sun during Johnny's tenure at Sun as well as singles issued after he left the label to join Columbia plus tracks found after the label was acquired by Shelby Singleton in A number of his hits were overdubbed with additional instrumentation and choruses when issued on LP and this set includes both the original and overdubbed versions.
It includes undubbed versions that were originally only issued in overdubbed form and the undubbed versions are almost inevitably more exciting. It also includes the best of the alternate takes available, demos, studio chatter and a couple of performances that only exist in incomplete form. The performances have been sequenced for enjoyment rather discographical purposes and copmes with a 36 page booklet with biographical info and a discussion of every track.
The Chuck Wagon Gang originally consisted of a father, son and two daughters. The two male and two female voices provide for some lovely harmonies accompanying themselves on guitar and occasional mandolin.
The remaining sides are from the period through by which time the group exclusively performed religious songs. Lovely music. Cowboy Copas didn't have a very distinctive voice, but he had a knack for picking out quality material. Copas is most famous for dying in the company of Patsy Cline, but don't sell him short. He had a career that started way back in the 's and was the star of many radio stations' featured shows in the 's.
This collection gives you a heaping helping of Cowboy Copas, concentrating on recordings between -for the King, Dot, and Starday labels. Fine selection of 25 tracks recorded by this popular and prolific Canadian performer - about half of them written by Davis himself. Davis was a fine singer and the majority of tracks feature him accompanied by one Lemon Parade - Tonic - Lemon Parade two guitars and these are the best cuts.
Others feature him with a small western group or occasional orchestral accompaniments. The entire recorded output 24 tracks of this group based out of Knoxville, Tennessee who performed a mixture of jazz, novelty songs and jazzy country. There's not a whole lot of country content in the group's performances though this should prove of interest to western swing fans. Fletcher was born Geremino Bisceglia in New York in but ran away to join the circus when he was a teenager and travelled throughout the west soaking up cowboy lore and music.
His third session included a fine fiddle player and his fourth added a mandolin and finds Tex duetting with vocalist Joe Rogers who later became known as Smokey Rogers. The last two sessions in Sittin And Talkin - Tye Robinson And His Orchestra - Stairway To Love '48 find him with a full western style group accordion, fiddle, steel guitar, etc who do a pleasant, if not terribly, exciting job backing Tex.
Though nothing here is particularly exciting it's a very appealing selection. Tom T. Hall is a Country legend, some would say "Outlaw," but most would agree he's a great artist and songwriter.
This is a re-issue of a rather brave outing of Hall's fromwhen he stepped away from what was making him popular to make an album of all Bluegrass. Unlike today, back in the'70s mainstream Ballerina (Instrumental) - Namie Amuro - Tsuki artists shied away from Bluegrass because it usually didn't sell much. This record was fairly popular, with one single, Fox on the Run Sioux City Sue - Hamilton County Bluegrass Band - Square Dancesnot the song by The Sweet making the top ten on the Country charts.
All in all, a great Bluegrass record, with fantastic players and really strong songwriting--good to see it getting a proper re-issue all these years later. Though best remembered for her classic rockers recorded in the 50s Wanda started her career singing country music and continued performing country after fairly brief flirtation with rockabilly.
The fidelity on this CD isn't great, probably due the source material. That isn't too big of an obstacle in the way of enjoying it. The Waylon on these recordings isn't quite the raging outlaw Waylon from the '70s, but much closer to the Waylon that played bass for Buddy Holly.
The voice is definitely already there, maybe minus a little of the power, but I'm sure any Waylon Jennings fan would love to hear this. Clearly this is a document of an artist full of talent and trying to figure out which direction to go.
Classic Album Collection. The second disc features their first Capitol album "Tragic Songs Of Life" from featuring some of their very finest work with the gorgeous Louvin harmonies against an all acoustic backing except for Paul Yandell's Sioux City Sue - Hamilton County Bluegrass Band - Square Dances guitar.
The third disc reissues "Nearer My God To Thee" from - another all gospel album with a mix of Louvin originals, traditional tunes and Southern gospel favorites.
Unfortunately there are no notes and it's shame that they didn't use the original album artwork. It's all been out before but if you don't already have much Louvins here's a chance to get some of their best work for a modest Sioux City Sue - Hamilton County Bluegrass Band - Square Dances . He's pissed off and he's gathered some like-minded friends like Merle Haggard and Heaven Owes Me One - 27 - Holding On For Brighter Days Wiseman to join in and make an excellent record about it.
McCoury is the leader here and is in fine voice presenting material he is clearly passionate about. This is truly a fantastic album and I hope it gets the attention that it deserves. Now here's something a little different. Sam Moore from Florida was a popular stage performer in the 20s though he didn't record a whole lot and, as far as I know, this is the first time any of his material has been reissued on CD.
Moore specialized in performing with offbeat musical instruments - most notably an eight string guitar called an octo-chorda and the musical saw. The latter is an honest to goodness carpenter's saw though saws specifically designed to play music were also made which is bent and played with a bow and the resulting sound is eerie and haunting - somewhat like a theremin.
It takes real talent to coax music out this instrument and Moore certainly have this talent. Most cuts feature him accompanied by Horace Davis on harp guitar or piano. Charming, haunting and fascinating - superbly remastered from extremly rare 78s and with extensive notes in Japanese. Here we have a hundred of his best recordings in a set that, for the first time, covers all facets of Willie's career.
It ends up in recent days where he has a lot of fine material still, including interesting covers of Jimmy Cliff and Django Reinhardt. This is easily Sioux City Sue - Hamilton County Bluegrass Band - Square Dances most comprehensive set ever put Sioux City Sue - Hamilton County Bluegrass Band - Square Dances for Willie Nelson; I listened to it all the way through--every single Sioux City Sue - Hamilton County Bluegrass Band - Square Dances even though I would have preferred a little less keyboard in some of the '80s tracks, I totally enjoyed it all.
There are even some great recent songs that could have been included! Where is Turning My Heart Right Over = ターニング・マイ・ハート・ライト・オーヴァー - Heartland - Wide Open are frequently, secretly fond of each otherand his cover of Caldonia?
Guess they are saving those for the next box set. All wrapped up in beautiful packaging, with extensive booklet featuring tons of rare photos, plus Sioux City Sue - Hamilton County Bluegrass Band - Square Dances info and new essays by Joe Nick Patoski and Mickey Raphael.
Ol' Tex did his first recordings for Art Satherley at ARC inbut his first extended tenure with any record company was with Decca from Ritter's recorded repertoire with Decca mixed traditional cowboy numbers with more commercial material. This isn't the most commercially memorable stuff Ritter recorded, but it gives a decent idea of where he started when he James Moody - James Moodys Greatest Hits! into the movies.
Brief but excellent notes by Charlie Seemann. Jimmie Skinner was definitely a bit of a rebel--or dare I say, "outlaw"--for his time.
Recordings span for labels, Radio Artists, Capitol, Decca and Mercury, including a couple rare demo cuts. Informative notes by Dave Samuelson fill the booklet, but you also get great audio snippets of Skinner himself reading from his unfinished biography.
When you add it all up, what you have Mind Decay - Krause - 2am Thoughts is a great chronicle of a unique Country artist, one that can easily be seen as a pre-curser to the Rockabilly cats that would soon shake up the world. AS you might expect there isn't a whole lot of country twang in his singing.
It includes his original recording of Sioux City Sue - Hamilton County Bluegrass Band - Square Dances own composition Sioux City Sue which became a Western standard as well as being covered with great success by Bing Crosby. This collection features 24 tracks recorded between and - most of them in the company of her second husband Dude Martin and his band The Roundup Rangers plus two duets with her third husband Hank Penny.
Even though marketed as country her early recordings are very pop oriented with only the occasional steel guitar and fiddle to distinguish it from straight pop. Sue is a decent singer though her adoption of a little girl voice for some of her songs gets pretty annoying. There is no shame in putting out a compilation full of wild and obscure Country tracks; Jasmine does a great job doing it.
Plus you get the usual fine selection of label reproductions and rare photos, that always tell a fascinating story on their own at least to record geeks like me. So all in all, what you get ain't what it says it is, but it is a fine collection, with lots of fantastic, rare Country songs and a handful of Rockabilly gems. No frills packaging, but quality sound, on par with what Gusto has been turning out of late.
Tearing off at full speed with Banjo Breakdown i. That's pretty much the collection in a nutshell, either deftly picked Bluegrass wonders or high lonesome ballads.
Bluegrass - Independent Labels, The selections here are drawn from local labels like Blue Ridge, Kentucky, Mutual, Henlee, Security and others and most of these tracks are appearing on CD for the first time. There are very few duds and most of the artists are excellent.
