CDs by Andy Parker & The Plainsmen

Eddie Dean-547
CD D 547

Eddie Dean & Andy Parker And The Plainsmen BACM CD 547

An essential ingredient of the 1940s black and white westerns, was the cowboy band, typically playing over the opening and closing credits as well as doing a ‘live’ performance built into the story. This collection takes songs from six popular movies from 1947/1948 featuring singing cowboy Eddie Dean (see also BACM CD 69, Dusty Old Saddle). We also include eight tracks of Eddie accompanied by the superb Andy Parker and The Plainsmen. Thanks are due to Andy’s son, Joe, who edited and digitally restored the tracks – continuing his epic work over the decades, archiving and restoring classic Western recordings, preserving an important part of America’s musical heritage for future generations.

This selection features radio transcriptions lovingly restored by Andy’s son, Joe Parker. As well as their excellent and distinctive harmony vocalists the band had some of the best musicians of the day including accordionist Leroy Kruble and classically trained violinist Harry Sims on fiddle.
