PETE PYLE + CHUCK HARDING BACM CD 592


A long overdue collection of recordings by the great Pete Pyle, one time member of Bill Monroe’s Bluegrass Boys and lead vocalist with Pee Wee King’s band (Pyle replaced the legendary Eddy Arnold in the mid 1940s). Not just a fine guitarist, he had a strong and distinctive country voice and could do a fine yodel (Home Sweet Home On The Rockies!); but he was also a prolific songwriter and over the years his songs were recorded by the likes of Bill Monroe, George Jones, Porter Wagoner, Willie Nelson and Little Jimmie Dickens. On several tracks he is joined by fellow musician and songwriter Chuck Harding. This CD celebrates the legacy of one of country music’s great talents, nowadays undeservedly forgotten.

MARC WILLIAMS – Little Joe The Wrangler. BACM CD669

A collection of cowboy songs from Texas born MARC WILLIAMS whose long broadcasting career began in the mid '20s on Dallas station KRLD and stretched through to the mid '50s, when he enjoyed a long stint as Happy Hank The Singing Cowboy on a popular children’s radio show. In the liner notes, Brian Golbey tells "When I was a boy, we had several of Marc Williams recordings at home ... in my opinion he recorded the definitive versions of several well-known cowboy songs including Roy Bean (the story of the self-appointed judge ... who boasted he was 'All law west of the Pecos', The Dying Ranger and Night Herding Song". Our CD showcases the best of his recordings, easy going vocal style, mainly just Marc and guitar.

RUDY SOOTER – Out In The Golden West. BACM CD670

A second set of RUDY SOOTER recordings, mainly focussing on Sooter’s early recordings (1938-41). A nice variety of styles - western songs, humour/novelty numbers and swinging instrumentals. Musicians include fiddler Spade Cooley and electric guitar pioneer Curly Hoeg and several members of the Beverley Hillbillies including their lead singer Ezra Paulette and guitar-mandolinist Speed Hansen. Storybook Cowboy contains a playful jab at Sooter’s friend Bob Nolan, a former lifeguard “I’m a Storybook Cowboy from down on the beach. I write about cattle and such”). BACM’s 670th CD release.

Gene Autry – Sings Jimmie Rodgers. BACM CD 665

Our 9th Gene Autry compilation takes us back to the first stage of Autry’s career when his style was closely modelled on that of his idol, the legendary Jimmie Rodgers. We have pulled together nearly all of his Rodgers covers, recorded between 1929 and 1933 under various names. He could get astonishingly close to the original when he wanted to but could also create a fresh sound – nice version of Carolina Sunshine Girl which strips out the jazz band and just has Autry with his own fine guitar backing. This is the first of a BACM mini series of the songs of Jimmie Rodgers recorded by other performers of the era.

Leo Soileau & His Four Aces – BACM CD 667

BACM have not done a lot of cajun collections so let’s make up for it with a compilation of fine 1930’s cajun by one of the pioneers, Leo Soileau and his Four Aces. Here you’ll recognise a lot of the songs as old timey favourites, sung of course in Cajun style with great fiddle playing by Leo. Most of Soileau’s French language recordings have already been re-issued on other labels but little of his English language material, something we are glad to remedy here.

HOOT RAINS & CURLEY HERNDON. Additional tracks by JACK FORD. BACM CD 662

Hoot Rains and Curley Herndon were already seasoned musicians when they joined Slim Whitman’s band in 1950, getting wide exposure on the Louisiana Hayride as Whitman’s popularity soared with early hits like Love Song Of The Waterfall, Indian Love Song and China Doll, on all of which they played. Hoot’s “Soaring steel’ and Curley’s lead guitar produced a sound like no other, perfectly complementing Slim’s yodelling and the public loved it! Hoot and Curley meanwhile struck up a double act themselves, performing and recording as a fine harmony duo. Our CD showcases 16 of their recordings on the Imperial, Starday and Starrite labels. We round off the collection with some tracks from another regular Hayride performer from the same era, Nathaniel “Jack” Ford – four of his Chess recordings and plus five off-radio recordings of Jack singing accompanied by Hoots and Curley.

ERNIE LEE – Easy To Please. BACM CD 663

Here is another of those talented country artistes who despite having enjoyed regional popularity never got the break (or hit record!) to become nationwide stars. Ernie Lee became an early regular on the Renfro Valley Barn Dance in the early ‘40s, later joining the Midwestern Hayride as MC and featured singer before moving to Florida in 1954 becoming a mainstay on several local radio shows as well as the area’s first TV station WSUN. He remained the major country music figure in Florida for the next 30 years with his laid back style and easy-going country crooner voice which many have rated as better than his friend and co-performer Red Foley. BACM are pleased to offer this collection of Lee’s recordings made in the late 1940s and early 50s. It includes the rarely heard Cold War era song No Jo, a swipe at communism and Joseph Stalin and first recorded by Hank Williams.

BILL & NORMAN NETTLES. The Early Years 1937-1941 – BACM CD 664

Bill Nettles’ name remains better known than his brother Norman but early in their careers they performed as a team, billed first as the Dixie Blue Boys and later as the Nettles Brothers. In common with other vocal based brother acts of the era they featured mandolin (Bill) and guitar (Norman) but seem to have rarely sung as a duet. They developed a distinctive style usually incorporating bluesy fiddle. To quote from Kevin Coffey’s liner notes “Their style, while always unashamedly country and never abandoning basic early influences straddled the fence between rural tradition and more modern urban Influence. Their music, especially Bill's, was steeped in blues and, like most of those who catered to the jukebox demands of the era, also gave more than a nod to the emerging western swing bands”. Bill Nettles was an excellent songwriter and it is widely believed that Davis’ massive hit Nobody’s Darling But Mine was written by Nettles who sold the rights to Davies to meet an urgent need for cash. Our compilation presents 26 of their recordings, equally split between 1937 and 1941.
