CUSTOM MADE HILLBILLY Vol.11. BACM CD 583

Some real gems here despite the obscure names; the only act which achieved some broader fame was the Cackle Sisters (named for their amazing impersonations of animal sounds as well as their yodelling), also known as the De Zurick Sisters). But the voices, arrangements and songs are all good, authentic ‘50s-style country’ - This CD will be enjoyed by folks who like the authentic sounds of 1950s/early ‘60s country and who like hearing songs and artists they’ve not heard before.

SMILIN’ EDDIE HILL BACM CD D 581

Friendly-voiced Eddie Hill was a pioneering country music DJ, nowadays best remembered for his compering at WSM-Nashville and the WLAC-TV Country Junction show. But he was also a prolific recording artist, recording for Decca, Mercury, RCA and Columbia. Bear Family and Cattle Records have issued selections of his recordings and we’ve put ‘The best of the rest’on this BACM compilation. Hill always had top session men on his recordings (hear Chet Atkins and Grady Martin trading licks on Educated Fool; and Johnny & Jack doing the vocals alongside Eddie’s recitations on the 1947 tracks). Some hilarious comedy numbers including a spoof country version of Jack & The Beanstalk, name-checking Hank Snow and Chet Atkins among others!) An enjoyable hours’ feel-good-country-listening.

JIMMY THOMASON The Early Years. BACM CD 582

Jimmy Thomason was a fine singer and excellent fiddle player from Waco Texas who played an important role in the development of what became known as The Bakersfield Sound from the early 1950s onwards. Back in the early 1930’s he was leading his own bands whilst barely beyond his mid teens and in 1936 the 18 year old Tomason was star vocalist and fiddle player on some superb Doug Bines & His Dixie Ramblers recordings. Other early cuts on our CD include Tomason alongside Moon Mullican (as The Sunshine Boys, 1937) and several early 1940s recordings with the Shelton Brothers. Thomason’s fiddle playing can also be heard on our Shelton Brothers CDs, BACM 10, 370 and 562 respectively and several later-era tracks recorded under his own name are on our Swinging On The Brazos CD 561.

PACIFIC NORTHWEST Various Artists BACM CD 580

A big thanks to Dick Heil, musician, collector and historian who years ago put together a compilation of mid ‘40s to mid ‘50s western band recordings from the Pacific North West. Correspondence over the years with British musicologist Kevin Coffey has eventually borne fruit with this BACM collection. featuring some of the biggest stars on the 40s/50s North Western scene as well as some obscure ones. Twenty of the tracks are from Heil’s original compilation and as usual we have worked hard on the remastering to remove imperfections and noise whilst preserving musical integrity. A fine celebration of the vibrant NW music scene of the era, complementing earlier BACM releases including the various Texas Jim Lewis and Jack Rivers CDs. As a footnote - the first track, Three Day Pass by Arkie Shibley has , on piano, Dean Manuel later one of Jim Reeves’ Blue Boys who died in Reeves’ 1964 plane crash.
