Our second collection from this superb family group who built a reputation as America’s most colourful hillbilly band and were hugely influential in multiple genres - country, rockabilly, and rock 'n' roll.

Nice selection of songs on the CD, mainly from their 4Star catalogue, late 1940s.

MY HEART’S ACROSS THE BORDER- Various Artists. BACM CD 655

“A fascinating mix of sounds and styles across a diverse mix of artists, all centred around the theme of cross-border western music in its various forms” (to quote from musicologist and Broadcaster Paul Hazell’s liner notes).

Some of the artists are very obscure but there are also tracks from Tex Ritter, Rex Allen, Tommy Duncan, Spade Cooley and Red River Dave McEnery. A nice companion to our 2008 South Of The Border collection (BACM CD 221) which has been one of our best sellers over the years (and is still available!)
