PACIFIC NORTHWEST Various Artists BACM CD 580

A big thanks to Dick Heil, musician, collector and historian who years ago put together a compilation of mid ‘40s to mid ‘50s western band recordings from the Pacific North West. Correspondence over the years with British musicologist Kevin Coffey has eventually borne fruit with this BACM collection. featuring some of the biggest stars on the 40s/50s North Western scene as well as some obscure ones. Twenty of the tracks are from Heil’s original compilation and as usual we have worked hard on the remastering to remove imperfections and noise whilst preserving musical integrity. A fine celebration of the vibrant NW music scene of the era, complementing earlier BACM releases including the various Texas Jim Lewis and Jack Rivers CDs. As a footnote - the first track, Three Day Pass by Arkie Shibley has, on piano, Dean Manuel later one of Jim Reeves’ Blue Boys who died in Reeves’ 1964 plane crash. Another footnote - Track 4, Paul Tutmarc & The Wranglers features a young Bonnie Guitar as vocalist, six before her smash Dark Moon hit.

PARKER FAMILY – Country & Bluegrass Gospel. BACM CD 569

One of the most popular ‘traditional country’ family groups in West Virginia post WWII were Rex and Eleonore Parker who, later when performing with their two daughters, became known as the Parker Family. They never strove to hit the big time nationally, preferring to maintain their success at the regional level. From 1959 onwards they began to focus on gospel music, regularly appearing on the weekly Songs For Salvation show and cutting several albums with the same title and BACM have compiled this selection from those albums. Appalachian style gospel at it’s best, their sound often echoing the Carter Family.

PETE PYLE + CHUCK HARDING BACM CD 592

A long overdue collection of recordings by the great Pete Pyle, one time member of Bill Monroe’s Bluegrass Boys and lead vocalist with Pee Wee King’s band (Pyle replaced the legendary Eddy Arnold in the mid 1940s). Not just a fine guitarist, he had a strong and distinctive country voice and could do a fine yodel (Home Sweet Home On The Rockies!); but he was also a prolific songwriter and over the years his songs were recorded by the likes of Bill Monroe, George Jones, Porter Wagoner, Willie Nelson and Little Jimmie Dickens. On several tracks he is joined by fellow musician and songwriter Chuck Harding. This CD celebrates the legacy of one of country music’s great talents, nowadays undeservedly forgotten.

The Phipps Family were one of the great interpreters of old timey hillbilly and gospel music, who began performing publicly in the early 1940s and whose performing/ recording career continued through to the late 1980s. Their style was modelled on that of the Carter Family and they recorded several Carter tribute albums. BACM are pleased to present this collection, 23 songs from the Carter Family repertoire culled from recordings the Phipps Family laid down on Starday around 1960. Several of the classics including a superb Wildwood Flower. Impeccable musicianship and great vocals. Fine yodelling on several tracks.

REDD STEWART – Gotta Get Back To Dixie. BACM CD660

Best known for his songwriting skills (Tennessee Waltz, Bonaparte's Retreat and You Belong To Me) and his partnership with bandleader Pee Wee King, Redd Stewart was a talented musician (fiddle, banjo and piano) and versatile vocalist, pitch perfect and equally at home on country weepies and more upbeat numbers. Our collection focuses mainly on his 1949-51 recordings on the King label plus a few later RCA and Do-Re-Mi label recordings. On most tracks the backing is credited as Kentucky Colonels, apparently comprised of members of his long term backing group The Golden West Cowboys but not named for contractual reasons. An enjoyable hour of fine note-perfect early-50s country listening.

Wanderer’s Stomp – Pre War Dallas Vol 1-BACM CD 633

Dallas was a hotbed of progressive string band music in the early 1930s, influenced by its neighbour Fort Worth (the reputed Cradle of Western Swing) and taking on board other regional jazz, blues and hillbilly influences. BACM has already dedicated some CDs to early Dallas western swing stalwarts like Bill Boyd and Roy Newman and this collection focusses on lesser known groups. Many of the musicians were legends in their own right including tenor banjoist and mainstay of the Light Crust Doughboys Marvin Montgomery and singer-guitarist Dick Reinhart. Nice mix of styles including stripped down blues from the Paradise Joy Boys with what we believe is the first ever cover of Blind Lemon Jefferson’s Matchbox Blues. The fiddler is trained violinist and child prodigy, Felix St Clair. Other highlights included four fine recordings from “hot” Hawaiian trio the Hauulea Entertainers, led by local steel guitarist and teacher J. B. Stevenson and nine from the Wanderers, a Western Swing group much influenced by Milton Brown.
