Arizona Joe-522
CD D 522

ARIZONA JOE – Radio Transcriptions. CD 522

This collection has taken years for us to get together, following many requests especially from folks on the North West coast who wrote telling us they grew up listening to Arizona Joe’s radio broadcasts beginning in the 1940s. At last, thanks especially to Tacoma-based record collector, fan and historian Dennis Flannigan we have able to produce this album – all featuring Joe, just his voice and guitar and, on several tracks, mournful comb-kazoo. Mix of cowboy, and popular country songs including a few Jimmie Rodgers classics.
