CALLAHAN BROTHERS Take The News To Mother BACM CD 578


BACM’s first Callahan Brothers collection focuses mainly on their 1930s recordings, featuring their close harmony ‘White country yodelling-blues’ style. Songs a mix of old time country and Jimmie Rodgers numbers (several of the latter are adapted and retitled, for example Rodgers’ Mississippi Moon becomes North Carolina Moon and Blue Yodel No. 7 becomes I’ve Rode The Southern & The L&N ). Both brothers were accomplished musicians, Walter playing guitar and Homer variously guitar, fiddle and mandolin and on several tracks they are joined by the great Kentucky mandolinist Roy “Shorty” Hobbs.

CD D 647

BROTHERS IN COUNTRY MUSIC. Various Artists. BACM CD 647

Another collection of Old Time Songs & Tunes, following on from our CD 340 and CD 364 compilations, this time focussing on brother acts. Thanks to BACM co-founder Brian Golbey for the sleeve notes and for digging deep into his private collection. Many of the tracks are from the very first generation of country recording artists - some of whom have featured on earlier BACM collections (like the Carlisle Brothers, the Callahan Brothers, the Delmore Brothers and the Morris Brothers). A treat for fans of early hillbilly roots music.
