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.

Another BACM CD focusing on a particular US region or State – this one covering the niche but vibrant country music scene in and around New Orleans, mainly 1950s.

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.
