PETE PYLE + CHUCK HARDING BACM CD 592


A long overdue collection of recordings by the great Pete Pyle, one time member of Bill Monroe’s Bluegrass Boys and lead vocalist with Pee Wee King’s band (Pyle replaced the legendary Eddy Arnold in the mid 1940s). Not just a fine guitarist, he had a strong and distinctive country voice and could do a fine yodel (Home Sweet Home On The Rockies!); but he was also a prolific songwriter and over the years his songs were recorded by the likes of Bill Monroe, George Jones, Porter Wagoner, Willie Nelson and Little Jimmie Dickens. On several tracks he is joined by fellow musician and songwriter Chuck Harding. This CD celebrates the legacy of one of country music’s great talents, nowadays undeservedly forgotten.

COLE WILSON & The Tumbleweeds with Nola Hewitt. BACM CD 686

Country music achieved popularity in New Zealand in the 1930s with the recordings of Jimmie Rodgers, Harry Torrani and Wilf Carter inspiring a generation of home grown talent including the legendary Tex Morton. A generation later two families steeped in the music of that earlier era emerged, the brothers Cole and Les Wilson and the Hewitt Sisters, Nola and Myra. Les Wilson went to develop his own career in the Wilf Carter style as The Otago Rambler while in the late 1940s, Cole and Nola teamed up with double-base player Bill Ditchfield and steel guitarist Colin McCrorie first as The Hawaiian Serenaders and then The Tumbleweeds. They cut dozens of tracks for the Tanza label between 1949 and 1952 and BACM are pleased to present a selection of these recordings which we believe is their first reissue since the original singles. To quote from Paul Hazell’s liner notes: “Cole’s distinctive vocals and occasional yodelling, Nola’s harmonies and McCrorie’s melancholy steel combined to produce a distinctive sound that was new and unique”.

PETE PIKE – The Virginia Hillbilly. BACM CD 683.

We included three Pete Pike recordings on our BLUE RIBBON LABEL collection (BACM CD 683) leading to many requests for more. We have now sourced enough tracks for a full CD (thanks are due to David Mankelow). Pike was another of those big talents who somehow never made the national big time despite a distinctive voice and making some fine recordings. He achieved strong local popularity in Virginia in the ‘40s through radio shows and appearances at the Virginia Music festival and was one of the first artistes to sign up to the Rebel Record Company in 1950, recording at the legendary Owen Bradley Studios with Chet Atkins, Floyd Cramer and Pete Drake as key session men. Several of these early recordings are on our BACM disc – mainly in the classic early 50s country style somewhat reminiscent of Webb Pierce. We also include some later recordings in a more bluegrassy style duetting with Buzz Busby in Washington DC.

Interesting selection of fresh-on-the ear artistes and songs.
