RICKY RIDDLE – I’m A Whip Crackin’ Daddy-BACM CD 644

Many will not have had the chance of hearing Ricky Riddle before, a fine baritone voice some would see as a trailblazer for the early Eddie Arnold and Jim Reeves style of country crooning, so we have gathered up a couple of dozen of his recordings, all from the early 1950s. Good straight out country, a fresh listen to recordings you almost certainly will not be familiar with. Includes Price Of Love, a fine duet with Anita Kerr later of the Anita Kerr Singers. The band is led by guitarist Harold ‘Hal’ Bradley who became an A-team session man through the 60s’, both on rhythm and lead (Bradley played the opening banjo notes on Johnny Horton’s 1959 hit “The Battle of New Orleans and his electric bass guitar can be heard on many legendary hits including Patsy Cline’s “Crazy”.)

Swinging In San Diego – Various Artistes 1946-51. BACM 645

Rare recordings from the San Diego area , many not previously commercially recorded. Our thanks are due to Kevin Coffey for all the hard work which went into this production. Fans of Western Swing will enjoy this, bringing us the sounds which were entertaining in the Bars, Honky Tonks and Dance Halls throughout the great South West and surrounding States during the post war years. Most of the tracks are rare and possibly not commercially recorded. So, 70 years on, lend your ears to the thrill of this country-tinged swing music bouncing along the air waves and helping lift the spirits of a population who had only recently lived through the troubles of WW2.

LONZO & OSCAR Vol. 2 – Country Music Time. BACM CD 641

Lonzo & Oscar were a very popular act on the Grand Ole Opry during the 1960s, and we had very positive feedback for our earlier compilation released in 2017 (BACM CD 198) and requests for more. So we’ve finally got around to it, putting together this selection, the best of the rest, showcasing not just their humorous parodies but also their superb musicianship.

RUSTY DRAPER Vol 2. A Little Bit Of Western Style. BACM CD 642

Our second Rusty Draper CD focuses mainly on his early 1950s recordings featuring big orchestras of the time but also includes several later recordings with a more ‘1950s country’ sound including fine renditions of Please Help Me I’m Falling, Jealous Heart and Signed, Sealed And Delivered. Also an interesting Fenderman-styled rendition of Mule Skinner Blues recorded in 1960. By this time, Rusty had chalked up had some big hits and was an up and coming popular star with country roots.

RAMBLIN’ LOU SCHRIVER and the Twin Pine Mountaineers. BACM CD 638

RAMBLIN’ LOU SCHRIVER was very popular in the Niagara Falls region of New York State back in the late 40s / early 50s. and owned a record store in that region. His Twin Pine Mountaineers band included his multi-instrumentalist wife Joanie Marshall, who played guitar, fiddle and banjo. Passionate about country music he became renowned not only as a performer but also as a broadcaster (station WWOL in Buffalo on the shores of Lake Erie in upstate New York). He had talent and built a loyal radio audience and his show was able to attract the big names from Nashville and the West Coast to guest on. Nice mix of original compositions, traditional songs and classic country songs like Gene Autry’s Silver Haired Daddy Of Mine, Roy Acuff’s Radio Station SAVED and Hank Snow’s Brand On My Heart.

THE HARDIN COUNTY BOYS (Denver Duke & Jeffery Null). BACM CD 639

THE HARDIN COUNTY BOYS alias Denver Duke and Jeffery Null, were a fine bluegrass group with a distinctive vocal style, nice harmonies led by Denver Duke’s sweet vocals. They issued several LPs in the mid to late 50s and early 60s but as far as we are aware none of their material has made it to CD apart from a re-release of one of their Canadian Rosedale albums, now deleted. Today they are fast becoming cult figures in country music with their very collectable sentimental songs. Nice selection of their recordings across various labels, from the mid to the late 1950s, a mix of country and bluegrass, mainly original compositions.

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.

Hillbilly Novelty Bands In New York Vol 1 (1935-39). BACM CD 635

Many will be surprised to learn there was ANY country music happening in New York in the late 1930s but there was – as evidenced by BACM’s earlier Carson Robison and Denver Darling releases. There was also a thriving ‘hillbilly-novelty’ scene, with several groups serving up corny treatments of popular and western songs, often featuring top rate musicians some of whom were regular players on straight hillbilly recordings of the era. This brought forward a new sound that achieved some popularity with city folk back in the thirties who were so used to Jazz & the big orchestral sounds. We at BACM thought that it should not be forgotten and lost within the pages of time - so we’ve dug up these recordings – five novelty groups working out of New York during the period 1935 to 1939
