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.

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.

HYLO BROWN Ace Bluegrass Singer BACM CD 575

Nowadays best remembered for his work with Flatt & Scruggs’ Foggy Mountain Boys, Hylo was a superb bluegrass musician (vocals, Guitar, Bass guitar) and songwriter whose career stretched from 1939 to 1980 including a burst of popularity in the early 1960s following his Newport Festival appearances with Earl Scruggs, bringing bluegrass music to new audiences. For our CD we have selected 26 of his best recordings, mainly early 1960s and some from the 1950s. Nice bluegrassy interpretation of T For Texas.

Texas Rangers-577-150
CD D 577

THE TEXAS RANGERS Vol. 2 1941–1947 BACM CD 577

An unusual ‘Western Harmony’ group in that few of the musicians came from a traditional or hillbilly background so they developed a distinctive style, shaping their repertoire to their own strengths, described elsewhere as “Impeccable musicality, some fine song writing and an infectious sense of fun”. The ‘Impeccable musicianship’ includes some extraordinary instrumental work with great solos by Clarence Hartman (who could play 18 instruments but here playing bass – often taking the solo part which most western bands would have given to the fiddler), Joe Strand (accordion) and guitar virtuoso Herb Kratoska (who was also featured on our recent HOT GUITARS Vol. 1 Early Country Hillbilly & Jazz collection). Nice mix of standards like Old Chisholm Trail, When The Bloom Is On The Sage and Careless Love – and some fine originals. Many thanks to Kevin Coffee for the research and liner notes.

CD D 573

WAYNE JOHNSTON & The Blue Bonnet Playboys BACM CD 573

A fine band, although little known outside West Texas and Southern New Mexico, where they were established performers on the dance band circuit and through their radio and TV live performances. Johnson was a big fan of Western Swing from childhood on, becoming an accomplished steel player. After war service and a stint as a DJ he joined the established Bluebonnet Playboys band in 1952. These live recordings show the band in good form, with various vocalists including long time member Lindsey Smith and guest vocalists Floyd Tillman and Red Brown. Nice mix of songs, Western Swing standards, popular country songs of the day - and from 1956 - a curious jazzy version of See You Later Alligator!

PARKER FAMILY – Country & Bluegrass Gospel. BACM CD 569

One of the most popular ‘traditional country’ family groups in West Virginia post WWII were Rex and Eleonore Parker who, later when performing with their two daughters, became known as the Parker Family. They never strove to hit the big time nationally, preferring to maintain their success at the regional level. From 1959 onwards they began to focus on gospel music, regularly appearing on the weekly Songs For Salvation show and cutting several albums with the same title and BACM have compiled this selection from those albums. Appalachian style gospel at it’s best, their sound often echoing the Carter Family.
