Texas Jim Lewis-Vol 3-small-588-150
CD D 588

TEXAS JIM LEWIS & His Lone Star Cowboys Vol. 3 BACM CD 588


This third volume spans the 1940s, recordings for the Decca and Exclusive labels following Texas Jim's move from Texas to California. Collaborators on these recordings include a young Cindy Walker who went on to become a songwriter legend and Spade Cooley providing session fiddle prior to starting his own band in 1942. Nice mix of songs and styles including Western Swing and novelty tunes, the latter featuring Lewis playing the Hootinannie – a contraption that incorporated bells, percussion and horns!
