CD D 573

WAYNE JOHNSTON & The Blue Bonnet Playboys BACM CD 573

A fine band, although little known outside West Texas and Southern New Mexico, where they were established performers on the dance band circuit and through their radio and TV live performances. Johnson was a big fan of Western Swing from childhood on, becoming an accomplished steel player. After war service and a stint as a DJ he joined the established Bluebonnet Playboys band in 1952. These live recordings show the band in good form, with various vocalists including long time member Lindsey Smith and guest vocalists Floyd Tillman and Red Brown. Nice mix of songs, Western Swing standards, popular country songs of the day - and from 1956 - a curious jazzy version of See You Later Alligator!
