Hillbilly Novelty Bands In New York Vol 1 (1935-39). BACM CD 635

Many will be surprised to learn there was ANY country music happening in New York in the late 1930s but there was – as evidenced by BACM’s earlier Carson Robison and Denver Darling releases. There was also a thriving ‘hillbilly-novelty’ scene, with several groups serving up corny treatments of popular and western songs, often featuring top rate musicians some of whom were regular players on straight hillbilly recordings of the era. This brought forward a new sound that achieved some popularity with city folk back in the thirties who were so used to Jazz & the big orchestral sounds. We at BACM thought that it should not be forgotten and lost within the pages of time - so we’ve dug up these recordings – five novelty groups working out of New York during the period 1935 to 1939
