Country Chat - March 2019

1st March. Over the past 17 years we’ve grown to be a leading source of authentic early country music, thanks to our dedicated team – a small group of country music devotees who put in the hours to make sure we can produce another three CD releases, every month. With this month’s we now have created 625 CDs, all of them still available. Thanks are due too to our customers and especially our regular subscribers (‘Archive Buddies’) who have signed up to automatically receive each month’s CDs at a discount price. Country music enthusiasts all – and we do our best to play fair with them, keeping prices low despite the battle with rising postage and production costs. We and our loyal customers have grown to be like a family, many of us in our twilight years.

Mind you there are some people out there who do not play fair. Over the past few weeks we’ve been trodden on by a company that sells illegal copies of our CDs at highly inflated prices. I do hope that those who are tempted to buy through them will find out what downright crooks they are – an illegal company (based in Delaware who advertise on Amazon) selling goods that are poor quality copies of BACM products. And you can be sure you won’t get from them the guarantee and free postage we provide. And I bet the crooks behind it aren’t even proper country fans, just after duping people to make a quick buck.

So please spread the word to other country music fans who might be interested in buying BACM discs, tell them only to buy direct from us or direct from Amazon; and not chance their arm on other untrustworthy sources.

That done with, let’s move on to the nitty gritty of our March CDs.

BACM CD 632 Ed McCurdy. Mainly known for his Folk songs, Ed produced some fine renditions of traditional Western and Cowboy Music. Supported by his guitar and the banjo of Erik Darling these come across as superb Western songs, many of them a favourite of the likes of myself, who first heard them on Tex Ritter discs and later by other
