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.

WAYNE JOHNSTON & The Blue Bonnet Playboys BACM CD 573

A fine band, although little known outside West Texas and Southern New Mexico, where they were established performers on the dance band circuit and through their radio and TV live performances. Johnson was a big fan of Western Swing from childhood on, becoming an accomplished steel player. After war service and a stint as a DJ he joined the established Bluebonnet Playboys band in 1952. These live recordings show the band in good form, with various vocalists including long time member Lindsey Smith and guest vocalists Floyd Tillman and Red Brown. Nice mix of songs, Western Swing standards, popular country songs of the day - and from 1956 - a curious jazzy version of See You Later Alligator!

WESTERN SERENADE. Live Western Swing In The 1950s. BACM CD 640

Another treat for hard core Western Swing fans. A collection of live recordings culled from various sections of radio and TV programmes broadcast during the early 1950s as well as some direct dance hall tapings. Thanks are due to musicologist Kevin Coffey for putting this together including the research and liner notes. Highlights include Hoyle Nix’s live version of Big Balls In Cowtown (his studio version was on BACM CD 453) and three TV recordings from Texas Jim Lewis. The sound quality is not up to that of commercial recordings but we do think it captures well the atmosphere of the dance halls & beer joints of the day.

Brothers Zeke and Zeb Turner were both superb guitarists and both contributed session work on some classic Hank Willams recordings (eg: Zeb on Wedding Bells!). Both took early to the electric guitar, and our collection of Zeb’s recordings kicks off with Zeb’s superb landmark recording of Mountain Boogie. He is nowadays best remembered through his song writing credits (including the classic It’s A Sin, which charted for Eddy Arnold and Marty Robbins and was also recorded by George Jones and Don Gibson as well as Elvis). But he was also a superb and distinctive vocalist, here heard mainly on his own compositions.
