BILLY BRIGGS – CHEW TOBACCO RAG. BACM CD 489


A unique once-off, quirky vocalist/songwriter/distinctive steel guitarist, Briggs is nowadays best remembered for his early ‘50s hit Chew Tobacco Rag, but his recording career goes back to the 1930s including playing steel with the legendary Hi-Flyers (eg: on BACM 406), early exponents of Western Swing. This CD features his recordings with the Imperial label between 1949 and 1953 – mainly up-tempo novelties, many jazz-tinged, just guitar, steel and bass but producing a solid, driving sound.
