HOOT RAINS & CURLEY HERNDON. Additional tracks by JACK FORD. BACM CD 662

Hoot Rains and Curley Herndon were already seasoned musicians when they joined Slim Whitman’s band in 1950, getting wide exposure on the Louisiana Hayride as Whitman’s popularity soared with early hits like Love Song Of The Waterfall, Indian Love Song and China Doll, on all of which they played. Hoot’s “Soaring steel’ and Curley’s lead guitar produced a sound like no other, perfectly complementing Slim’s yodelling and the public loved it! Hoot and Curley meanwhile struck up a double act themselves, performing and recording as a fine harmony duo. Our CD showcases 16 of their recordings on the Imperial, Starday and Starrite labels. We round off the collection with some tracks from another regular Hayride performer from the same era, Nathaniel “Jack” Ford – four of his Chess recordings and plus five off-radio recordings of Jack singing accompanied by Hoots and Curley.
