28 Sept – birthday of D.P. “Dad” Carter (28 Sept 1889-28 April 1963) founder of hillbilly and gospel family group The Chuck Wagon Gang in 1935 which went on to sell nearly 40 million records and at one point were Columbia’s biggest selling group. The first 15 songs on BACM’s CD 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.
