The Night Owls-538
CD D 538

THE NITE OWLS. Featuring Al Dexter & Clay Long. BACM CD 538


They have largely dropped out of the history books and their recording era lasted just a couple of years in the late 1930s, but the Night Owls were an accomplished trio of superb musicians who went onto become leading players in the fast developing Western swing scene; lead instrumentalist, Bob Symons played (variously) steel, standard guitar and electric guitar – one of the first to record on the instrument, playing one of the early Rickenbackers. This compilation, 28 tracks, mix of styles – proto Western Swing, honky tonk and novelty; 18 as The Night owls, featuring several vocalists including two (unissued) tracks featuring a young Al Dexter a few years before he hit the big time with Pistol Packing Mama.
