BILL WILLHITE with Al Clauser’s Oklahoma Outlaws – BACM CD 566

Bill Willhite was the rich voiced lead singer and guitarist on the one of the very first BACM issues (BACM 02, released in 2002 as Jack Savage & His Cowboys) and we have at last managed to track down enough good quality recordings for a second collection. 20 transcriptions recorded in California, mostly backed with Al Clauser’s crack band The Oklahoma Cowboys during the period when Hillhite and the band were filming with Gene Autry. Plus a few later tracks from the mid ‘40s. Nice mix of Western, popular and old timey songs – from this talented and once popular performer who is undeservedly overlooked by the country history books.

RILEY CRABTREE 1955-1963 Recordings – BACM CD 567

Stricken with polio at age 2, Crabtree lived a life on crutches but carved out a reasonably successful career as a country music songwriter and performer whose voice and phrasing have more than a passing similarity with those of Hank Williams.  BACM included five of his recordings on our Jimmie Rodgers covers CD (FOLLOWING IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF JIMMIE RODGERS Various Artists, BACM CD 387) and are pleased to now issue this collection, 25 tracks showing his versatility, with a mix of country ballads and more up tempo numbers edging towards what would later be labelled rockabilly. One track, Meet Me At Joe’s features a very young Eddie Cochran on lead guitar.

THE RAZORBACK LABEL – Various Artists. BACM CD 564
