CD D 169

CAL SHRUM & His Rhythm Rangers/ Colorado Hillbillies. B.A.C.M. 169

Through their long and prolific recording careers, brothers Cal and Walt Shrum managed to draw to their band(s) some of the best western musicians of their era including future stars Spade Cooley (fiddle), Deuce and Ace Spriggins (both, guitar) and the great deep voiced vocalist Tex Williams. Also the tragically short-lived Cene Haas whose guitar style sounds (to this listener) remarkably similar to Hank Snow’s. This CD features rare tracks, none previously available on CD. Nice mix of instrumentals and superb vocals including refreshingly different takes on Old Shep and Walking The Floor Over You. A superb hour’s listening enjoyment.

CARL BUTLER – Remember The Alamo. BACM CD 636

Carl Butler began singing and playing guitar as a kid back in the 1930s and after wartime service began performing on radio leading to his first studio recordings in 1947 – that was accompanying one of his childhood hero-groups, the Bailes Brothers. He first appeared on the Opry in 1948 and began his solo recording career in 1950, initially on Columbia. He enjoyed some success both as a songwriter and singer through the 1950s but only hit the big time in 1961 when he and his wife Pearl recorded Don’t Let Me Cross Over – which stayed at No. 1 for 11 weeks. Carl and Pearl went on to score a series of hits and successful albums throughout the 1960s and beyond, always staying ‘Pure country’. This collection covers the period from early 1958 to the early 1960s, 27 fine recordings many of them not previously released on CD and rare.
