RAMBLIN’ LOU SCRIVER and the Twin Pine Mountaineers. BACM CD 638

RAMBLIN’ LOU SCHRIVER was very popular in the Niagara Falls region of New York State back in the late 40s / early 50s. and owned a record store in that region. His Twin Pine Mountaineers band included his multi-instrumentalist wife Joanie Marshall, who played guitar, fiddle and banjo. Passionate about country music he became renowned not only as a performer but also as a broadcaster (station WWOL in Buffalo on the shores of Lake Erie in upstate New York). He had talent and built a loyal radio audience and his show was able to attract the big names from Nashville and the West Coast to guest on. Nice mix of original compositions, traditional songs and classic country songs like Gene Autry’s Silver Haired Daddy Of Mine, Roy Acuff’s Radio Station SAVED and Hank Snow’s Brand On My Heart.

DENVER DUKE & JEFFERY NULL – The Hardin County Boys. BACM CD 639

THE HARDIN COUNTY BOYS alias Denver Duke and Jeffery Null, were a fine bluegrass group with a distinctive vocal style, nice harmonies led by Denver Duke’s sweet vocals. They issued several LPs in the mid to late 50s and early 60s but as far as we are aware none of their material has made it to CD apart from a re-release of one of their Canadian Rosedale albums, now deleted. Today they are fast becoming cult figures in country music with their very collectable sentimental songs. Nice selection of their recordings across various labels, from the mid to the late 1950s, a mix of country and bluegrass, mainly original compositions.

WESTERN SERENADE – Live Western Swing In the Dance Halls Of The 1950s

Another treat for hard core Western Swing fans. A collection of live recordings culled from various sections of radio and TV programmes broadcast during the early 1950s as well as some direct dance hall tapings. Thanks are due to musicologist Kevin Coffey for putting this together including the research and liner notes. Highlights include Hoyle Nix’s live version of Big Balls In Cowtown (his studio version was on BACM CD 453) and three TV recordings from Texas Jim Lewis. The sound quality is not up to that of commercial recordings but we do think it captures well the atmosphere of the dance halls & beer joints of the day.

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

CARL BUTLER – Remember The Alamo. BACM CD 636

Carl Butler began singing and playing guitar as a kid back in the 1930s and after wartime service began performing on radio leading to his first studio recordings in 1947 – that was accompanying one of his childhood hero-groups, the Bailes Brothers. He first appeared on the Opry in 1948 and began his solo recording career in 1950, initially on Columbia. Heenjoyed some success both as a songwriter and singer through the 1950s but only hit the big time in 1961 when he and his wife Pearl recorded Don’t Let Me Cross Over – which stayed at No. 1 for 11 weeks. Carl and Pearl went on to score a series of hits and successful albums throughout the 1960s and beyond, always staying ‘Pure country’. This collection covers the period from early 1958 to the early 1960s, 27 fine recordings many of them not previously released on CD and rare.

JIMMIE RODGERS SNOW – Treasures Untold. BACM CD 637

Son of Canadian legend Hank Snow, Jimmie Rodgers Snow began his recording career in 1950 on the 4-Star label before joining RCA in 1953. At the time, his dad was RCA’s biggest selling artist and this remained the case up until Elvis Presley arriving on the scene in the mid 1950s. Jimmie hung out with Elvis for a while before the latter’s meteoric rise to fame and Elvis’ recording Love Me was styled on Jimmie’s 1954 version of the song, featured in this collection. Here are most of Jimmie’s Country singles on RCA and as a bonus, a number of his earliest recordings, early 1950s on the 4 Star Label, recorded as “Jimmie Snow”. Several of the early recordings feature his dad’s distinctive guitar runs – a treat for Hank Snow fans. For me, the outstanding track is the two Snows duetting on When Jimmie Rodgers Said Goodbye, sublime!

EDDY ARNOLD – Cattle Call. BACM CD 632

Our first collection of Eddy Arnold recordings including several from the late 1940s to early 50s when he scored a string of hits including Bouquet Of Roses and Anytime and was the best selling country star, even outselling Hank Williams. A fine country crooner as much at home with up tempo foot tappers as with country ballads.

Wanderer’s Stomp – Pre War Dallas Vol 1-BACM CD 633

Dallas was a hotbed of progressive string band music in the early 1930s, influenced by its neighbour Fort Worth (the reputed Cradle of Western Swing) and taking on board other regional jazz, blues and hillbilly influences. BACM has already dedicated some CDs to early Dallas western swing stalwarts like Bill Boyd and Roy Newman and this collection focusses on lesser known groups. Many of the musicians were legends in their own right including tenor banjoist and mainstay of the Light Crust Doughboys Marvin Montgomery and singer-guitarist Dick Reinhart. Nice mix of styles including stripped down blues from the Paradise Joy Boys with what we believe is the first ever cover of Blind Lemon Jefferson’s Matchbox Blues. The fiddler is trained violinist and child prodigy, Felix St Clair. Other highlights included four fine recordings from “hot” Hawaiian trio the Hauulea Entertainers, led by local steel guitarist and teacher J. B. Stevenson and nine from the Wanderers, a Western Swing group much influenced by Milton Brown.

EDDIE HAZELWOOD – I’ll Pay You No Never Mind. BACM CD 634

Eddie Hazelwood was a fine singer and talented songwriter who undeservedly never made the big time outside Southern California. This long overdue collection features most of his recordings, some with top session musicians including Merle Travis on electric guitar and Tex Atchinson on fiddle – also tracks from his last sessions include a young Joe Maphis on lead guitar. One curiosity is Hazlewood’s 1953 cover of Big Mama Thornton’s Hound Dog hit, featuring both Merle Travis and Joe Maphis on guitar - a full three years before Elvis recorded his mis-remembered lyrics version.

STONEWALL JACKSON – Life Of A Poorboy. BACM CD 629

Our first STONEWALL JACKSON compilation, a hard core country singer and fine songwriter who got his break on the Grand Ole Opry just days after arriving in Nashville and pitching some songs to Wesley Rose. Ernest Tubb took him under his wing hiring him as an opener to his shows. Jackson’s early recordings were much influenced by his idol Hank Williams but he soon developed his own style and the hits followed including his massive crossover hit Waterloo in 1959. (Not on this CD but available on one of BACM’s Country Music Memories CDs. Most Popular Country Recordings of 1959, Volume 1 CD). Several of Jackson’s lesser known hits are featured, making this a fine hour’s listening for fans who enjoy the strong vibrant style of late 1950s country.
