LES “Carrot Top” ANDERSON – My Baby Buckaroo. B.A.C.M. 470


Les is nowadays remembered for his steel guitar work, both with Bob Wills & The Texas Playboys and other bands including with Spade Cooley and T. Texas Tyler. But Les was also an excellent singer, performing and recording under his own name and leading a superb band, and became something of a West Coast star in the early 1950s. Pleasant relaxed vocal style, a bit reminiscent of Dean Martin. We have compiled this first volume of his recordings – mix of straightforward country and western swing recorded between 1945 and 1952 plus some rare live recordings.

COUNTRY MUSIC LADIES – Vol. 3. BACM CD 677

Our third Country Music Ladies compilation includes a mix of well known artistes (Carolina Cotton, Dale Evans and June Carter) and lesser known ones. The previous volumes focused on the 1950s but this time we include some from the 1930s (yodelling duo The De Zurik Sisters) and 1940s (the Rodik Sisters – for a snippet of them singing on the 1941 movie The Return Of Daniel Boone, check YouTube!). Mattie O’Neil started out singing with one of her sisters Martha Carson (see BACM CDs 161 and 204); we feature four of her recordings accompanied by husband Salty Holmes, founder member of The Prairie Ramblers.

BRIAN GOLBEY – Dew On The Purple Sage. BACM CD 671

Brian Golbey is widely recognised as the best ever British interpreter of old time country music making many fine albums over the years, all sadly now out of print so this release is a nice reminder of his talents. It kicks off with a tribute to the ‘Singing Cowboys” of the 1930s, 14 songs capturing the sound and style of his heroes from the era, the likes of Gene Autry, Tex Ritter and The Sons Of The Pioneers recorded in his own studio with multi-instrumentalist Golbey serving up the guitar and fiddle accompaniment as well as vocals. Plus another eight recordings recorded over the years, nice mix of styles and eras. Brian was co-founder of BACM, and is a long time country music collector and promoter of the genre through magazines, books and broadcasts.

CURLEY BRADLEY Sings Jimmie Rodgers & Other Classics (1933-34). With The Ranch Boys . BACM CD 672

The name will be unfamiliar to many but Curley was one of the star vocalists with the Ranch Boys, a western trio who achieved enormous popularity back in the 1930s, singing and acting their parts in the widely syndicated “Pinto Pete & his Ranch Boys” radio shows. (Veteran singer Wade Lane played the foreman and the Ranch Boys played his hands). BACM have already issued two CDs of Ranch Boys songs and this new collection showcases early (1933-34) Pinto Pete & his Ranch Boys excerpts focusing especially on ones where Curley sings solo. Quoting from Kevin Coffey's liner notes: “Although he was a consummate group singer, he had a beautiful solo voice, could yodel with the best, and also had a real feel for the blues." Includes a dozen superb renditions of classic Jimmie Rodgers songs.

HANK FORT & Dottie Dillard – Country Cabaret – CC 001

“Hank Fort” was the stage name of the extraordinary Eleanore Hankins, Nashville socialite, singer/pianist and prolific songwriter who composed over 400 songs including the pop hit Put Your Shoes On Lucy. Our CD includes songs from her 1958 album on which she was accompanied by Nashville’s A-list musicians including Chet Atkins and Hank Garland. Not our usual pure-country fare but she was a genuine Southern gal, born and raised in Nashville and whose songs were recorded by country stars like Patsy Montana and Jean Shepard as well as mainstream pop singers like Petula Clark and Gracie Fields. As a historical extra we include six 1947-49 tracks of Fort’s songs sung by Dottie Dillard (later of the Anita Kerr Singers) backed with Owen Bradley’s Orchestra – the Bradley who went on to have enormous influence as the leading architect of the 1950s/ 1960s Nashville sound, producing the likes of Jim Reeves, Kitty Wells, Patsy Cline, Brenda Lee, Loretta Lynn and Conway Twitty.
