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.

MARC WILLIAMS – Little Joe The Wrangler. BACM CD669

A collection of cowboy songs from Texas born MARC WILLIAMS whose long broadcasting career began in the mid '20s on Dallas station KRLD and stretched through to the mid '50s, when he enjoyed a long stint as Happy Hank The Singing Cowboy on a popular children’s radio show. In the liner notes, Brian Golbey tells "When I was a boy, we had several of Marc Williams recordings at home ... in my opinion he recorded the definitive versions of several well-known cowboy songs including Roy Bean (the story of the self-appointed judge ... who boasted he was 'All law west of the Pecos', The Dying Ranger and Night Herding Song". Our CD showcases the best of his recordings, easy going vocal style, mainly just Marc and guitar.

Gene Autry – Sings Jimmie Rodgers. BACM CD 665

Our 9th Gene Autry compilation takes us back to the first stage of Autry’s career when his style was closely modelled on that of his idol, the legendary Jimmie Rodgers. We have pulled together nearly all of his Rodgers covers, recorded between 1929 and 1933 under various names. He could get astonishingly close to the original when he wanted to but could also create a fresh sound – nice version of Carolina Sunshine Girl which strips out the jazz band and just has Autry with his own fine guitar backing. This is the first of a BACM mini series of the songs of Jimmie Rodgers recorded by other performers of the era.
