SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY SWING – Various Artistes. BACM CD 657

A mixed bag of western swing and country from California spanning the years 1941-54. The Great Depression had brought a mass migration to California from Oklahoma and Texas and elsewhere adding Western and rural influences to the local musical scene, eventually spawning the Bakersfield Sound near LA and, another regional scene 200 miles to the north covering the central and lower San Joaquin Valley. Thanks due to Kevin Coffey for contributing recordings from his collection and for the liner notes.
