California Cowboys & Hillbillies Vol2-544
CD D 544

Early California Cowboys & Hillbillies Vol. 2 BACM CD 544 


There was a thriving country music scene in California in the 1930s and we have at last got around to this second compilation of historic recordings (a follow up to the first volume issued in 2010). Includes five rare 1934-37 recordings from the great Stuart Hamblen when his style was still largely modelled on Jimmie Rodgers. Another highlight, six more transcription recordings from Dude Martin & his Nevada Nite Herders (following up those on BACM’s CD 194, DUDE MARTIN’S NEVADA NIGHT HERDERS Cowboy’s Nightmare). Curiously, yet another group called ‘The Rolling Stones’ – this one even earlier, featuring Jimmy Adams (guitar) and Bud Jamison (harmonica and tenor), recorded in 1930. Thanks to Kevin Coffey for the research and comprehensive liner notes.
