REX ALLEN Cowgirlboy 5056 Yodelin' Crazy ● LP $13.98
Arizona singer Rex Allen has been called the "last of the singing cowboys" and was certainly one of the best. The 16 tracks here are from mid 40s radio transcriptions prior to his commercial recording career. Although some of his later recordings were very pop oriented this is staright western music with expressive vocals (and occasional yodelling) by Rex and accompaniments on guitar, fiddle, accordion & steel guitar plus vocal harmonies. Songs include My Old Adobe Shack/ Strawberry Roan/ Timber Winds/ Cowpunchers Blues, etc. Nice! (FS)

KIDD BAKER Cattle 90 The Country Music Legend Of new Brunswick ● LP $13.98
Enjoyable collection fo recordings from the early/ mid 50s by this popular Canadian artist. Baker was a good singer and also wrote most of the songs here - his band The Pine Ridge Mountain Boys (guitar, fiddle, bass and accordion) features some particularly nice fiddle work from Fiddlin' Cy.

TEX BAYNES & THE HAYSEEDS Cattle 127 Australian Hillbilly Music ● LP $13.98
Late 40's to early 50's recordings with accordion, fiddle, steel guitar backing etc. Although heavily influenced by the US C&W scene, Australia had a lot of great C&W artists at that time already. One of them was Tex Banes with his Hayseeds, who was once very popular through his famous radio show. It seems he never cared signing up with a record company, so all what was available to use for this LP was a lot of acetates he made for his personal use. He was also popular for his hootenanny which is occasionally audible.
TEX BAYNES & THE HAYSEEDS: A Sprig of Golden Wattle/ Away Far down in the Hollow/ Cowboy's Home in Heaven/ Don't Make Me Go to Bed and I'll Be Good/ Hayseed Yodel/ Home Sweet Home in the Rockies/ I'm Goin' Back to Whur I Come From/ Let's Be Sweetheart's Again/ Riders in the Sky./ Rock Me to Sleep in My Saddle/ Rose of the Rio/ That's My Bushland Home/ There's a Ranch in the Rockies/ Time Changes Everything/ When It's Night Time in Nevada/ over the Santa Fe Trail

 
THE BLUE SEAL PALS Cattle 102 On Sun-Up Serenade ● LP $13.98
The Blue Seal Pals were an interesting 40s group from Alabama which included Bill Cantrell, Dexter Johnson, Edgar Clayton, Buddy Bain & Quinton Claunch. The group was named after Blue Seal Flour which sponsored the various radio shows the band was on. Most of the band members later went on to solo careers. This album presents two complete radio shows from 1947 and '48 broadcast over WSM in Nashville and includes a mixture of songs and tunes - mostly traditional or covers of hits of the day. The performances are quite good and considering the age and rarity of these transcriptions the sound is quite good. (FS)
THE BLUE SEAL PALS: Boll Weevil/ Darling Think of What You've Done/ Give Me the Roses While I Live/ I Tickled Her under the Chin/ Ida Red/ In My Adobe Hacienda/ In the Sweet Bye and Bye/ Johnson's Reel (Inst.)/ Memphis Blues (Inst.)/ My Confession/ Old Joe Clark (Inst.)/ Roadside Rag (Inst.)/ Salmon Cockade (Inst.)/ Take Me Back to Tulsa/ The Blue Seal Theme/ The Blue Seal Theme/ The Blue Seal Theme/ The Blue Seal Theme/ The Blue Seal Theme/ The Blue Seal Theme./ The Leaf of Love/ Tho I Tried (I Can't Forget You)/ Too Late to Worry (Too Blue to Cry)/ Tramp on the Street/ Turkey in the Straw (Inst.)/ Won't You Ride in My Little Red Wagon/ You Only Want Me When You're Lonely

VIN BRUCE Cowgirlboy 5032 Country Songs From Louisiana ● LP $13.98
Vin Bruce is one of the most successful artists from Cajun country in melding the Cajun sound with the honky tonk sound of the fifties into something recognizably Cajun. These recordings, however, retain little of the charm and flavor of his Cajun roots. They are fairly obvious attempts to make commercially mainstream country recordings, and judged as that are quite nice. The instrumentation is pure Hank Williams, and Vin's vocals owe a lot to Carl Smith, who was enormously successful at the time these recordings were presumably made. (RP)
VIN BRUCE: Are You Forgetting?/ Dans La Louisianne/ Fille De La Ville/ Goodbye to a Sweetheart (Hello to a Friend)/ Here Is the Bottle./ I Tried/ I Trusted You/ I'll Stay Single/ I'm Gonna Steal My Baby Back/ Knockin' On The Door/ My Mama Said/ Over an Ocean of Golden Dreams/ Sweet Love/ Too Many Girls

STEW CLAYTON Cattle 74 The Canadian Country Balladeer ● LP $13.98
Pleasant album of recordings from 1970 by this Canadian singer and songwriter - Clayton's vocal is accompanied by guitar, mandolin and a rather over-prominent bass on a selection of mostly original songs about the wide open plains, outlaws, etc - a little bit of the flavor of Wilf Carter is present in the style - considering how recent the recordings are the sound quality is not too good (FS)
STEW CLAYTON: Down In The Little Green Valley/ Glory Trail./ Hillbilly Romance/ Memories of My Old Prairie Home/ My Married Life on the Plains/ Round-up Blues/ Strawberry Roan/ The Fate of Old Brimstone the Outlaw/ The Threshermen 's Reunion/ The Wheat Farmer's Lament/ The Zebra Dun/ the Barn Dance in the Fall

 
BRONCO BUCK CODY Binge 1011 And His Brazos Valley Ranch Hands ● LP $13.98
12 songs recorded in 1959 and issued on the obscure Wizard label in 1959 by Texas musical enterepeneur Col. Buster Doss. Doss was a singer, songwriter, artists manager and producer. These recordings feature his band and friends including Johnny Gimble/ guitar & mandolin, Buddy King/ lead guitar, Glen Paul/ steel guitar and others. Dos sings 3 of the songs under his alter ego of Bronco Buck Cody and the remaining vocals are by Kay Arnold, Larry Butler, Smilin' Jerry Jericho, Jimmy Jay and The Pickard Brothers. The instrumental work is nice with a western swing feel - unfortunately the vocals are uniformly awful! (FS)
BRONCO BUCK CODY: Do You Remember? (Voc. Smilin' Jerry Jericho)/ Fiddling Around (Voc. Johnny Gimble)/ Heads You Win (Tails I Lose) (Voc. Bronco Buck Cody)/ I Sleep No More (Voc. Smilin' Jerry Jericho)/ I'm Not Wanted Anymore (Voc. Larry Butler)/ Telling Lies (Voc. Kay Arnold)/ There Goes My Heartache (Voc.

RILEY CRABTREE Cowgirlboy 5116 Love Songs Of The Hills ● LP $13.98
The recordings on this LP go back until the late 1940s and were basically recorded at Jim Beck's Studio in Dallas, probably with similar personnel as used for the Lefty Frizzell sessions back then. It's genuine country music with plenty of fiddle and steel guitar accompaniment. Riley's voice sounds like a blend of T Texas Tyler and Lefty Frizzell.
RILEY CRABTREE: A Handful of Nickels/ Always Together (Never Apart)/ Gun Fightin' Marshal./ I Always Play a Losing Hand/ I Live with Memories (That Bless and Burn)/ I Stood and Watched Your Love Grow Cold/ If I Had Someone to Call My Very Own/ Let Me Walk Through the Valley/ Love Song of the Hills/ Maybe It's You or Maybe It's Me/ Shackles and Chains/ When this World Changes Hands/ Why, Darling, Why/ You Had to Stray/ You're Breaking My Heart Dear/ You're Wastin' Your Time

 
TED DAFFAN & HIS TEXANS Cowgirlboy 5051 Born To Lose ● LP $13.98
Ted Daffan and his Texans are widely viewed as a Western swing band as they worked extensively in both Texas and on the West Coast during World War II. However, musically, they couldn't hold a candle to Bob Wills, Spade Cooley or anyone else. None of the band's soloists were strong instrumentalists or great singers. The band served mainly as a vehicle for Daffan's songs, among the definitive Texas honky-tonk compositions. This 16-selection LP assembles some of his classic 1940's recordings including "Born to Lose," a country standard recorded by numerous pop singers. The original version, included Here, featured a vocal by fiddler Leon Seago. Most of the other numbers were ballads as well. Among them were "Baby, You Can't Get Me Down," "Shut That Gate," "Poor Little Bar Fly," "Time Won't Heal My Broken Heart," "Beyond The Shadow Of A Doubt" and "You Better Change Your Ways," all sung by Daffan. Ted also performs the odd recitation "Bluest Blues," with a vocal that comes off like a cross between Phil Harris and Boris Karloff!  (RK)
TED DAFFAN: Baby You Can't Get Me Down/ Beyond the Shadow of a Doubt/ Bluest Blues/ Born to Lose/ Broken Vows/ Go On-go On/ Just Born That Way/ Look Who's Talkin'/ No Letter Today/ Poor Little Bar Fly/ Shut That Gate/ Time Won't Heal My Broken Heart/ Trouble Keeps Hangin''Round My Door/ Two of a Kind/ You Better Change Your Ways/ You're Breaking My Heart.

 
JIMMIE DALE Cattle 66 Eastern Country & Western of Days Gone By ● LP $13.98
Enjoyable selection of songs, mostly from mid to late 50s by this singer from New Jersey - some excellent instrumental work by various musicians.

BOB & CINDY DEAN Cattle 87 The Sweethearts Of The Air ● LP $13.98
Intresting album of old time country singing and playing featuring Virginia singer Bob Dean on his own or in the company of his wife Cindy. The early tracks from '46 and '47 feature Bob by himself or duetting with Hank Dean (who also played fiddle on some cuts) accompanied by fine electric guitarist Leon Baxter. The other tracks from the 50s and early 60s feature Cindy who, unfortunately, is a rather terrible singer and tends to ruin what would otherwise be rather nice duets. The instrumental work on these tracks is generally very good - some have a bit of a bluegrass flavor. (FS)
BOB & CINDY DEAN: Back to Old Smoky Mountain/ Destination Moon/ Fox Chase./ Gone for Another/ I'll Take Her from the Valley/ I'm Knocking at the Door (of Your Heart)/ I'm Shedding Tears over You/ Long Time Gone/ Love Makes Me Hurt So Bad/ Lovin ' Ducky Daddy/ One Life to Live/ The Maple on the Hill/ Walk, Walk, Walkin' Blues/ When You Cross Your Heart

Early/ mid 50s tracks.
LITTLE JIMMY DICKENS: Blackeyed Joe's/ Closing Time/ Conscience (Set Me Free)/ F-o-o-l-i-s-h M-e Me/ I'm Fadin' Fast with the Time/ Love Song of the Bayou/ Poor Little Darlin'/ Stinky Pass the Hat Around/ Take Me as I Am (or Let Me Go)/ The Sign on the Highway/ Then I Had to Turn Around and Get Married/ They Don't Know Nothing at All/ When That Love Bug Bites You (He'll Keep Gnawin', Gnawin', Gnawin')./ When They Get Too Rough (They're Just Right for Me)/ You Better Not Do That/ You Don't Have Love at All

 
LOU DINNING Cattle 123 Favorite Songs From The Tennessee Ernie Show ● LP $13.98
16 tracks from 1954 Tennessee Ernie Ford radio shows by Lou Dinning of The Dinning Sisters. Accompanied by stellar musicians like Speedy West, Billy Strange, Harold Hensley and others she performs a selection of country and pop songs including Condemned Without Trial/ Can't Help Lovin' That Man Of Mine/ I'm Getting Sentimantal Over You/ I Went To Your Wedding/ I Cried For You/ I Really Don't Want To Know/ Am I In Love?/Keep It A Secret, etc. Pleasant enough material though Lou is obviously more of a pop singer than a country singer. (FS)
LOU DINNING: Am I in Love?/ Anniversary Song./ Can't Help Lovin' That Man of Mine/ Condemned Without Trial/ I Cried for You/ I Don't Hurt Anymore/ I Really Don't Want to Know/ I Went to Your Wedding/ I'd Rather Die Young/ I'm Gettin' Sentimental over You/ In the Pines/ It Might as Well Be Spring/ Keep it a Secret/ Take Me in Your Arms and Hold Me/ The Very Thought of You/ What'll I Do

 
MARK DINNING Binge 1012 I'm Just A Country Boy ● LP $13.98
Most of you who remember Mark Dinning might only remember his smash hit of "Teen Angel" which only entered the pop and not the country charts. Mark in the late 50's was as much "country" as Sheb Wooley or Marty Robbins when they all recorded in the Nashville sound of that time. If you love that style with the excellent voice of the late Mark Dinning then you won't be disappointed with this release. Not the Anita Kerr Singers but the magnificent voices of Dolores Dinning & Millie Kirkham were hired for an attractive backing.
