Neil Burris 471
CD D 471

NEAL BURRIS – The Ozark Trail Rider. B.A.C.M. 471

A sweet voiced tenor and guitarist who joined the Grand Ole Opry in 1951 but whose singing career was cut short by a serious throat infection in the mid 1950s’ He then made use of his guitarist skills, evolving into a bass player with various jazz ensembles. His excellent country credentials are showcased in this 23 track selection, nice mix of songs and tempos, all solid country with plenty of fiddle, piano and Hawaiian tinged steel. Amazing how someone of this calibre has dropped into oblivion.

THE NITE OWLS. Featuring Al Dexter & Clay Long. BACM CD 538

They have largely dropped out of the history books and their recording era lasted just a couple of years in the late 1930s, but the Night Owls were an accomplished trio of superb musicians who went onto become leading players in the fast developing Western swing scene; lead instrumentalist, Bob Symons played (variously) steel, standard guitar and electric guitar – one of the first to record on the instrument, playing one of the early Rickenbackers. This compilation, 28 tracks, mix of styles – proto Western Swing, honky tonk and novelty; 18 as The Night owls, featuring several vocalists including two (unissued) tracks featuring a young Al Dexter a few years before he hit the big time with Pistol Packing Mama.

Operatic Cowboys-508
CD D 508

OPERATIC COWBOYS From The Early 30s. BACM CD 508

No one could accuse us of not trying to ‘Cover all bases’ in our trawls through the historic roots of Country Music! Here are some long lost recordings – from the era when silent movies were on the way out and the movie makers were experimenting with soundtracks to find the right sound to go with their cowboy movies. This was before the explosion of popular Singing Cowboys with the likes of Gene Autry and Roy Rogers and some of the early singers featured here had switched from the worlds of opera and musicals. The Fred Scott recordings are especially rare - recovered from an old tape, possibly the only one in the world?

Parker Family-CD569-small
CD D 569

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.
