CD D 239

CHUCK WAGON GANG Secular And Sacred Songs. B.A.C.M. 239

A selection of sentimental and sacred songs recorded 1936-54 from this four-piece harmony group. Led by David “Dad” Carter they were originally The Carter Quartet; the first 15 songs on this collection date from the late ‘30s, a mix of contemporary hillbilly and Cowboy songs, tight harmony singing, somewhat sweeter in sound than the ‘Other’ Carter Family, with mandolin and guitar accompaniment. The final nine tracks, all in the sacred/gospel genre, date from the early 1950s when they had deservedly become country music legends and gospel icons. Superb, easy listening.

Parker Family-CD569-small
CD D 569

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.
