Hillbilly Novelty Bands In New York Vol 1 (1935-39). BACM CD 635


Many will be surprised to learn there was ANY country music happening in New York in the late 1930s but there was – as evidenced by BACM’s earlier Carson Robison and Denver Darling releases. There was also a thriving ‘hillbilly-novelty’ scene, with several groups serving up corny treatments of popular and western songs, often featuring top rate musicians some of whom were regular players on straight hillbilly recordings of the era. This brought forward a new sound that achieved some popularity with city folk back in the thirties who were so used to Jazz & the big orchestral sounds. We at BACM thought that it should not be forgotten and lost within the pages of time - so we’ve dug up these recordings – five novelty groups working out of New York during the period 1935 to 1939

REDD STEWART – Gotta Get Back To Dixie. BACM CD660

Best known for his songwriting skills (Tennessee Waltz, Bonaparte's Retreat and You Belong To Me) and his partnership with bandleader Pee Wee King, Redd Stewart was a talented musician (fiddle, banjo and piano) and versatile vocalist, pitch perfect and equally at home on country weepies and more upbeat numbers. Our collection focuses mainly on his 1949-51 recordings on the King label plus a few later RCA and Do-Re-Mi label recordings. On most tracks the backing is credited as Kentucky Colonels, apparently comprised of members of his long term backing group The Golden West Cowboys but not named for contractual reasons. An enjoyable hour of fine note-perfect early-50s country listening.

San Francisco Bay Area Western Bands 1944-52. Somewhere Along The Trail. BACM CD661

This is a companion piece to our recent release which covered western bands from California's San Joaquin Valley. We now turn the spotlight on the San Francisco Bay area from 1944 to 1952. The Bay Area's hillbilly and western music scene had been a lively one since the mid-1920s and this continued through the 1930s and even more during the war when things exploded with the region bursting at the seams with military personnel and shipyard and other defence industry workers from all over the US. Ray Wade’s Rhythm Riders was a fine western swing group who were packing the dance halls in the mid 1940s and included future star Dave Stogner on fiddle as well as members of Bob Style’s pre war band. One of Wade's featured vocalists, Dusty Dale had been active on the local scene for at least a decade and recorded six fine sides with his own group The Trail Blazers in 1946. Five of these tracks are included here – great western swing with wonderful fiddle and accordion – and a fine banjo intro on the novelty Cal-i-for-ny-i-a! Don Churchill was one of the best known western band leaders in the Bay Area from the war years Into the 1960s. Here we feature seven late '40s tracks on the Trilon label with Clint ‘Curly’ Burns on lead vocals as well as some Four-Star recordings from 1952 with Don himself on vocal duties. Nice version of Texas Plains. We also have four recordings by "Tiny Mite of Yodelling Dynamite" Arvada Miller. Brought up in Colorado she was performing in Northern California by 1930 becoming vocalist with Dude Martin’s band during the war years. Her replacement on leaving to get married was her admirer, the teenage Caroline Cotton. Post war, Arvada had her own band the Rhythm Rustlers but the four tracks here were recorded with the Gallion Brothers for the LA-based Cormac label in 1950-51. In great voice on covers of Lovesick Blues, Mockingbird Hill and she also waxed My Ever Lovin' Ducky Daddy Blues, which her former protégé Carolina Cotton also cut for MGM. Beyond Miller's vocals, the highlight of the sessions was Rex Gallion's fantastic lead guitar work.

BLUE RIBBON LABEL. Tribute to Phil Tricker. BACM CD 658

34 recordings on Blue Ribbon, a budget label which specialised in cover versions of popular country and rockabilly songs, using talented singers who were either unknown or had become out of work because of changing tastes, backed by top session musicians. Early to mid 50s. One track by the later to be famous, Roy Clark. Hearing these songs with a slightly different take to the originals is like fresh air to the ears. The CD was a work in progress by our long time collaborator and friend, the collector and authority on all things country and rockabilly, the late Phil Tricker. We dedicate this CD to his memory.
