MISSOURI ROUNDUP – Various Artists. BACM CD 596

Following on from earlier selections of rare recordings from other US states including Colorado (BACM CD 404), Georgia (BACM CD 548), Kentucky (BACM CD 475), Ohio (CD 465 and 570), Texas (BACM CDs 486 and 574 ) and Wisconsin (BACM CD 464) we now turn to Missouri, home to a dazzling array of country music talent. We have unearthed 26 fine recordings, mainly the 1940s and ‘50s, mostly by artistes who never made the big time but deserved to. A couple who did achieve wider fame – Wade Ray, who went onto achieve a good deal of success as an RCA artiste and Rod Morris, best known nowadays as writer of Jim Reeves’ smash hit Bimbo. Morris had been active on the Missouri country scene from 1937.

GLENN DOUGLAS TUBB – Let Me Cry Alone. BACM CD 597

A collection of hard-country recordings from Ernest Tubb’s nephew, Glen Douglas Tubb covering his superb early recordings from 1955-58. A distinctive and versatile singer whose voice has echoes of Hank Williams and Faron Young. Nowadays best remembered for his song writing, having penned or co-penned many hits for the likes of George Jones, Johnny Cash and Kitty Wells. 26 songs on our collection, nice mix of styles and tempos mainly country (pre ‘Nashville Sound’ – no heavenly strings here!) and a few rockabilly ballads somewhat in the style of Buddy Holly. I've not been able to identify the backing musicians - some awesome bass and lead guitar. Douglas Glenn Tubb is now in his 80s and continues to keep the Tubb family name through his involvement in the Midnight Jamboree Association.

Scored several US county and novelty hits in the early 1950s; then came rockabilly and more hits. Our CD has a nice cross section of Bonnie Lou’s different styles; a beautiful lady with a fine voice..

JOHNNY DENIS Vol. 2 BACM CD 591

A second selection from “Sheriff” Johnny Denis, mainly focusing on his 1940s recordings, mostly in the small-band western swing style. Denis was English and became a semi-professional musician in the mid 1930s, accomplished on guitar and steel as well as being an amazing whistler (some of his recordings here suggest a new genre, Whistling Western Swing!) Adopted a fully ‘cowboy’ image in the 1950s through his popular BBC series Way Out West and he owned several horses which he incorporated into his act. Moved to the US in 1954, achieving some popularity especially in Vegas and Reno and issuing three LPs. Hi-lights of this set – superb versions of Sweet Georgia Brown and Sweet Sue, featuring Danny Levan’s fantastic fiddling and Canadian/British bass legend Jack Fallon. Thanks for the liner notes to Kevin Coffee who managed to track Denis down a few years ago, long resident in the US and well into his 90s.

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.
