Bill Clifton - CD 418
CD D 418

BILL CLIFTON & Hamilton County Bluegrass Band. B.A.C.M. 418

In our opinion one of the all time great Bluegrass/Old-timey performers. Fans may already have Clifton’s excellent Bear Family 8-CD box set (recommended!), but here we have a special treat – 28 tracks he recorded in New Zealand in 1970 with a superb NZ bluegrass band. In great voice, with a nice variety of songs, mix of old-timey, bluegrass and country, several featuring his trademark autoharp breaks!

The Tennessee River Boys CD 417
CD D 417

The Tennessee River Boys (Two different groups!). B.A.C.M. 417

There has long been much confusion amongst collectors arising from these two groups, both doing fine Bluegrass and using the same name. Paul (Boswell) and Roy (Pryor) were both registered blind and played guitar and mandolin respectively, recording on Mercury and Pace. The other pair, Curtis McPeake (5 string banjo/guitar) and Benny Williams (fiddle, guitar, banjo, autoharp, and mandolin) were both sometime members of Bill Monroe’s legendary Blue Grass Boys.

WILMA LEE & STONEY COOPER On The Banks Of The River. B.A.C.M. 154

An interesting crossover between Old-timey and Bluegrass but all with a commercial leaning, this husband and wife team produced some great authentic country music as evidenced by this selection of 22 tracks recorded between 1949 and 1955.
