CD D 640

WESTERN SERENADE. Live Western Swing In The 1950s. BACM CD 640

Another treat for hard core Western Swing fans. A collection of live recordings culled from various sections of radio and TV programmes broadcast during the early 1950s as well as some direct dance hall tapings. Thanks are due to musicologist Kevin Coffey for putting this together including the research and liner notes. Highlights include Hoyle Nix’s live version of Big Balls In Cowtown (his studio version was on BACM CD 453) and three TV recordings from Texas Jim Lewis. The sound quality is not up to that of commercial recordings but we do think it captures well the atmosphere of the dance halls & beer joints of the day.

CD D 619

PRE-WAR WESTERN SWING Vol. 2 – Rare Radio Broadcasts. BACM CD 619

Following the 2016 release of Vol. 1, BACM delves again into radio broadcasts made by western swing, cowboy and country jazz line-ups of the pre-WWII era. The recordings range roughly from winter 1933-34 through 1942. Many of the performers featured are far from household names, some downright obscure. The best known is surely Pee Wee King, captured in telling early performances from the Grand Ole Opry, and there are performances from other notables like Rex Griffin, Wiley & Gene and The Ranch Boys.

CD D 588

TEXAS JIM LEWIS & His Lone Star Cowboys Vol. 3 BACM CD 588

This third volume spans the 1940s, recordings for the Decca and Exclusive labels following Texas Jim's move from Texas to California. Collaborators on these recordings include a young Cindy Walker who went on to become a songwriter legend and Spade Cooley providing session fiddle prior to starting his own band in 1942. Nice mix of songs and styles including Western Swing and novelty tunes, the latter featuring Lewis playing the Hootinannie – a contraption that incorporated bells, percussion and horns!
