Rare Rockabilly Boppin-and a few surprises!• Here’s some nice rare rockabilly and hillbilly boppes by Wiley Barkdull, Tom Tall, Leon & Carlos, Bily Barrix, Arnold Van Winkle, Tennesee Thompson, etc..
plus there are a few surprises tucked in…..I’m afraid to list them lest my listeners think that I’ve completely gone potty [as my UK friends would say]..especially one artist not associated with rocakbilly
Check this one out--Don rockin' it out with hank Garland on guitar--there's not a whole lot of footage of Hank around so this is a god way to see how he could so easily play that git-tar and how tragic that 1961 accident took way that power.
This 78 came out in 1937 and featured vocals by Cyril Smith [whoever he was]. I like all kinds of old music and trust me, I can come up with stuff even more cornier than this.. This was on the BLUEBIRD sub lable of RCA, which is whre all the cool country and blues records were issued back in the 1930s..
It’s Only Doo Wop-It Won’t Bite You.• No Comments (Edit) Yeah after the last few shows of hillbilly honky tonk and bluegrass–I decided to take a rest and get my harmonies in order to present this all doo wop show
Unfortunately, I am not producing any new podcasts at this time, due to the fact that something is wrong with my MP3 files in relation to the podbean and other websites. When I try to download , it says file not accepted, but THESE ARE MP3 FILES-and for whatever reason, they cannot be read.
So until I can fix the problem --[ or download and upl;oad with a diffeent computer, I have to suspend the show--I"M SO CONFUSED!!!!!
This is my first attempt at a tribute show–so I just decided to pick Jack Guthrie. He may have been Woody Guthrie’s cousin, but he was one of country music’s pioneers and had he not died of TB [like his idol Jimmie Rodgers], he surely would have been one of the top names in country music history.
Here’s an hours worth of classic western swing-honky tonk-cowboy delights–
..oh yeah Jack’s 1946 hit of Oakie Boogie is considered to be one of he first rock n roll records!!
