JIM EANES Cowgirlboy 5033 Hillbilly Sounds At Its Best ● LP $13.98
The smoothest, most urbane of the bluegrass vocalists tried his hand at mainstream country in the early 50s and some of the best of these recordings are featured here. Jim is backed by Nashville's best session men of the time, among them Chet Atkins, Hank Garland, Tommy Jackson, Jerry Rivers and Grady Martin. The sound is, for the most part, more honky-tonk than bluegrass although Bobby Hicks on fiddle and Hubert Davis on banjo strike some sparks on Wiggle Worm Wiggle and the instrumentals Ridin' The Waves and Plunkin' Rag. Eanes is in good voice, and two of his own songs It's A Shame and Take This Broken Heart are outstanding. (RP)
JIM EANES: Between the Lines/ Don't Go Lookin' for Trouble/ Gloomy Tomorrow/ I Cried Again/ I'd Love to Be Your Darling/ In a Little Spanish Restaurant/ It's a Shame/ Kiss Me! Kiss Me!/ Little Brown Hand/ Plunkin' (Inst.)./ Ridin' the Waves (Inst.)/ Rose Garden Waltz/ Take this Broken Heart/ The Beginning of the End/ When the One That You Love Is in Love with You/ Wiggle Worm Wiggle

TERRY FELL Cowgirlboy 5099 The Original "Truck Driving Man" ● LP $13.98
Little is known about the guy who had the first big hit with a Truck Driver Song in 1954. The 16 tracks on this LP contain some of his finest and rarest items he recorded from 1946 to 1956. Musicians like Speedy West, Bud Isaacs, Jimmy Day, Dale Potter, Tommy Jackson, Chet Atkins, Jimmy Selph and others played the recording sessions.
TERRY FELL: Don't Do it Joe/ Don't Drop It/ Dreamer's Paradise/ Fa-so-la/ Fireball Boogie (Inst.)./ I Can Hear You Clucking (No. 1)/ I'm Hot to Trot/ If I Didn't Have You/ Let's Stay Together till after Christmas/ Over and Over/ Paper Heart/ Truck Driving Man/ We Wanna See Santa Do the Mambo/ Yesterday/ You Don't Give a Hang about Me/ You Don't Want Me Anymore

 
RED FOLEY Cowgirlboy 5107 Hot Toddy ● LP $13.98
Original commercial recordings from 1941 to 1954. 14 songs are from the 50s, so this album not only includes slow country ballads, but also some real hot country boogies. Foley always employed top musicians like Grady Martin, Tommy Jackson or Bud Isaacs.

WALLY FOWLER & HIS GEORGIA CLODHOPPE Cowgirlboy 5118 Early Days ● LP $13.98
Before Wally Fowler totally switched to religious country music he had a five piece band in the 40s called "The Georgia Clodhoppers”, which included the young Chet Atkins. Merle Travis or Jimmy Wakely recorded in about the same style back then. On the recordings basically Porky Freeman was used on the electric guitar and Jerry Byrd several times on steel. Great material from the mid to late 1940s.

CHARLIE GORE Cowgirlboy 5066 The Country Voice Of West Virginia ● LP $13.98
Highly underrated honky tonk country artist like Frankie Miller or Rocky Bill Ford. All three had an album out on the Audio label. However, these 13 tracks were takes from rare singles cut in the early and mid 50's with mostly steel and fiddle accompaniment. Jerry Byrd could be figured out as the steel player.
CHARLIE GORE: Come Back to Me/ Dark as a Dungeon/ Everything but a One Man Woman./ I Didn't Know/ I Know Somethin'/ I'll Find Somebody/ I'm Going to Lock You Up/ If I Told You, Would You Believe Me/ Post Office/ She Just Walked In/ Somebody's Been/ The Moon Won't Tell/ Two of a Kind

 
SKIP GRAVES Binge 1006 Love Country ● LP $13.98
A pleasant though unexceptional album of tracks mostly from the 60s by Graves who has achieved his greatest success as a songwriter. Skip is an undistinguished singer though there are some nice instrumental accompaniments here from the likes of Lloyd Green, Hargus Robbins, Phil Baugh, etc. 
SKIP GRAVES: Credit Cards (for Everything but Love)/ Heartaches Knocking on My Door/ If I'm a Fool for Leaving/ If this Ain't Love (I'll Eat My Hat)/ Indian Giver with Your Love/ Love Country/ Mad at Me/ Nothing and You/ The Mustard Seed/ What's My Father's Name/ You Let the Horse out of the Barn/ You're Gone for Good and I'm Good as Gone

 
DEWEY GROOM & HIS TEXAS LONGHORNS Binge 1009 Dewey Groom & His Texas Longhorns ● LP $13.98
Dewey cut his first popular record in 1948 and toured the USA until 1958 when be became co-owner of the famous Longhorn Ballroom. He signed a lot of great artists to the Ballroom and so he helped many artists to get popular including Janet McBride. The LP presents 12 of Dewey Groom's best single sides, previously released on the Longhorn label from 1960 to 1968 and is a good example of the typical Texas Honky Tonk Country Sound.
DEWEY GROOM & HIS TEXAS LONGHORNS: Butane Blues/ Don't Ever Change/ Don't Squeeze My Sharmon/ Heartaches for Sale/ Just Call Me on the Phone / Piggy Bank/ She Might Call/ Sometimes If I'm Lucky/ That's All I Want out of Life./ Within Your Crowd/ this Is Our Wedding Day

 
DICK HART Cattle 100 Hard Road To Nashville ● LP $13.98
A collection of 15 sides recorded by this Louisiana singer recorded between 1946 and 1980. In the 34 years covered by these recordings there is not a great variation in style. Hart, who died, in 1980 was a pretty good singer and most of the songs here were written by him or his wife Rose. The 1946 and 1980 recordings feature him with his own guitar accompaniment only while the rest feature him with a small band. Pleasant, if unexceptional stuff. (FS)
DICK HART: Cowboy Bill and Laughing Water/ Everybody's Sweetheart, Nobody's Fool/ Heartbreak All the Way./ I Don't Want to Be Alone/ I'll Do as I Cotton Pickin ' Please/ If the Truth Were Only Known/ It's Such a Lonely Feeling to Be Blue/ It's a Hard Road to Nashville/ It's the Little Things That Matter/ Time out for the Blues/ We're Just Louisiana/ Where a Man Is Just a Man/ Where the Tall Pines Pine/ Wobble Water/ Would it Make Any Difference

 
JIMMIE HEAP Cowgirlboy 5120 Early Days ● LP $13.98
This is a fine collection of the late Jimmie's beginning period from 1949-1951 with Cecil Harris (steel), Perk Williams fiddle/ vocal and other names that were still employed when they signed up with Capitol. You can expect slow country ballads as well as rhythmic western swing of high quality!

 
COUSIN HERB HENSON Castle 8111 Cousin Herb Henson and His Trading Post Gang ● LP $13.98
Early 50s country group from California - with high proportion of novelty songs - 4 cuts feature very young Dallas Frazier
COUSIN HERB HENSON: Ain't You Had No Bringin' up at All/ Bouncing Heart/ Come a Little Bit Closer/ Funny Book/ How Come Y'all Come/ I'm Gonna Move over Yonder/ I've Never Heard/ In Remembrance of You/ Laugh,laugh, Laugh/ Love Life at Fourteen./ Space Command/ Tattle Tale Moon/ Toto the Eskimo/ When You Give a Rose to a Red Head

 
DOLPH HEWITT Cattle 111 King Of The Batn Dance ● LP $13.98
16 songs recorded between the late 40s and mid 60s by singer/ fiddle player Hewitt. He is a fairly smooth and unexciting singer and most of the songs are fairly forgettable though there are some nice accompaniments, particularly by steel guitarist Don White.
DOLPH HEWITT: Ask My Heart/ Broken Promises/ Empty Promises/ End of the Rainbow/ I Hurt Inside/ I Wish I Knew/ I Would Send You Roses (but They Cost Too Much)/ Look into Your Heart/ Someone Hurt You./ Teeter Totter Love/ The Door to Your Love/ The Mocking Bird (Inst.)/ When a Dream Is Broken in Two/ You Gave Me Back My Ring (Please Give Me Back My Heart)/ for Ev'ry Kiss

 
'CHEROKEE' JACK HICKORY Cattle 43 Land of My Fathers ● LP $13.98
Story of Indian life in narration and song accompanied by his own guitar - the singing bears a resemblance to that of Hank Snow - interesting stuff
'CHEROKEE' JACK HICKORY: Land of My Fathers/ Little One/ Massacre at Sand Creek/ Once Around the Course/ Pebbles from the Stream/ Red Sky/ Sing Me a Song/ The Buffalo Hunter/ The Dying Pony

 
JOHNNY HICKS Cattle 114 Star Of The Bid "D" Jamboree ● LP $13.98
16 sides from the early 50s by Texas based singer. The songs are a mixture of western flavored items, blues and novelty songs. Hicks is a decent singer and there are some nice accompaniments from steel guitarists Buddy Griffin or Paul Blunt and fiddlers Billy Jack Saucier or Carroll Hubbard.
JOHNNY HICKS: All My Life (My Love Goes with You)/ An Angel in Disguise/ Butane Blues/ Curb Service/ Gotta Gitta Guitar/ Hamburger Hop/ Heart after Heart/ Hey Now Honey/ I Can't Get Enough of That Ah-ha (Bob Wills Tribute)/ I Care No More/ I Swear./ I Thought I Was Home to Stay/ Mended-One Broken Heart/ No Wild Side of Life/ Nueva Laredo/ The Man on the Corner

 
EDDIE HILL Cowgirlboy 5150 Star Of The Grand Ole Opry ● LP $13.98
Eddie Hill was once the replacement for Jack Anglin, when Jack was in world war II service and also recorded numerous records with Johnnie & Jack from their beginning on Apollo Records to 1959 on RCA as bass baritone singer. He was never credited for it. The former WSM disc jockey also made numerous Records as a solo singer and in a trio called The Eddie Hill Trio. Here is a collection of 16 songs he recorded for various major labels from 1949 to 1956-most of them with fiddle/ steel accompaniment.

"DIXIE" BILL HILTON & THE CALGARY RANGE RI Cattle 89 Ramblin' Man ● LP $13.98
Dixie Bill Hilton and The Calgary Range Riders were a popular group in Canada in the 40s and 50s and this album is an excellent selection of 12 songs recorded between 1950 and 1952. Bill is a fine singer with a touch of western flavor in his singing and the group is excellent featuring some particular fine fiddle by Freddie Long or Lucky Ambo and powerful steel guitar by Don Thompson. Most of the songs are originals and good too - there is also an excellent version of Hank Williams's Ramblin' Man . (FS)

 
ROY HOGSED Cowgirlboy 5015 Take That Slow Train Through Arkansas ● LP $13.98
Enjoyable collection of 16 western flavored tracks from the late 40s/ early 50s by singer/ guitarist Hogsed who was originally from Arkansas but settled in San Diego.

PAUL HOWARD Cattle 57 Western Swing at Its Best ● LP $13.98
Excellent album of western swing recorded between 1946 and 1948 - fine vocals by Howard, Eddie Shaw, or Red Perkins and fine instrumental work by the band which included, among others, Hank 'Sugarfoot' Garland/ guitar, Billy Bowman/ steel & Charlie Linville/ fiddle - Cotton Picker's Special/ Drinking All My Troubles Away/ Honest As the Day Is Long/ Texas Boogie, etc. Howard was one of the few Southern bandleaders to make good Western swing in the 40s and, more significantly, the Twin Guitars of Grady Martin and Jabbo Arrington on these sides were later appropriated lock, stock and barrel by Little Jimmy Dickens, who hired both players. Includes sides from King and Columbia with informative notes by Max M. Cole. (RK)
PAUL HOWARD: Drinking All My Troubles Away/ Honest as the Day Is Long/ Hora Sta Cotton Picker (Inst.)/ Oklahoma City/ Somebody Else's Trouble/ Texas Boogie/ The Fiddler with the Patch on His Pants/ There's No Room in My Heart (for the Blues)/ Those Foolish Lies/ You're Never Satisfied

DEXTER JOHNSON & HIS TENNESSEE VALLEY Cattle 78 We've Got That Hillbilly Fever ● LP $13.98
Enjoyable album of mid 80s recordings by veteran country performer Johnson who had some of his early recordings reissued on Cattle LP 67. Dexter sings and plays bass and is accompanied by a small group featuring Roy Cooper/ guitar, Keevil Hendon/ steel guitar and Kenny Lovelace/ fiddle. The music has a nice 40s feel to it with particularly tasteful playing by Hendon & Lovelace. Johnson is not the greatest singer but is pleasant enough.
DEXTER JOHNSON: A Smile Will Chase Away a Tear/ Grieving My Heart out for You./ Home in San Antone/ I Can't Go on this Way/ I Dreamed I Searched Heaven (for You)/ I Wonder If You Feel the Way I Do/ I'll Never Let You Go (Little Darling)/ Mama's Hall of Fame/ Remington Ride (Steel Inst.)/ Sweet Bunch of Daisies (Steel Inst.)/ There's a Big Raincloud/ Tho I Tried (I Can't Forget You)/ Those Gone and Left Me Blues/ Who's Been Tending to My Business?/ Who's the Winner?/ Your Memory Haunts My World

 
ROME JOHNSON & HIS SADDLE PALS Cattle 88 Down In My neck Of The Woods ● LP $13.98

Johnson and his band The Saddle Pals were taken under the wing of Fred Rose in the late 40s and Fred wrote several songs here including The Waltz Of the Wind & No One Will Ever Know which were later recorded by another Rose protege Hank Williams. 12 of the songs here are from the period 1946 through 1949 and are the better ones here featuring engaging singing by Rome and some nice instrumental work from guitarist Bob Mitchell, steel player Jerry Byrd and fiddlers Ray Sosby or Tommy Jackson.

KED KILLEN & HIS WESTERN ALL STARS Binge 1010 Country Music Is Here ● LP $13.98
Ked Killen was an obscure Kentucky singer who recorded some 20 sides for the small Western Ranch Music label in the late 60s. These are reissued in their entirety here. Killen was a good singer and was accompanied by a sturdy, if not exceptional, group of musicians. With their basic, uncluttered feel and thin recording quality these could easily have been recorded some 15 to 20 years earlier.  An enjoyable collection. (FS)

RED KIRK Cattle 115 The Voice Of The Country ● LP $13.98

JOE "CANNONBALL" LEWIS Cowgirlboy 5034 The Railroad Engineer ● LP $13.98
Since Joe isn't mentioned in any of my standard country reference Midwestern country labels. Some of the songs are co-written with Cincinnati country stalwart Jimmie Skinner and Joe's earnest, expressive vocals owe a lot to King's Cowboy Copas. Stylistically the records are a mixture of the string band hillbilly sound that was popular in the Ohio River Valley in the 50s and more mainstream honky tonk. Whatever the source, these are some very nice recordings by a fairly obscure artist. Outstanding among them are the post WWII weeper Missing In Action plus Truck Driver's Night Run Blues/ Train Whistle Nightmare (he does a great train whistle imitation here) and I'm Mighty Hard To Beat. A sleeper for fans of pure country. (RP)
JOE "CANNONBALL" LEWIS: (Down The) Road to Love/ Calling out My Name/ I Wonder If I Can Lose the Blues/ I'd Be Sweet Talkin' You/ I'm Mighty Hard to Beat/ Missing in Action/ Only in Dreams/ Railroad Engineer/ Still Around/ Take Me Back for Ol' Times Sake/ This Way/ Train Whistle Nightmare/ Truck Drivers Night Run Blues/ Trust Me Again/ What's the Use/ Whatever Has Become of You./ Yours to Claim

 
TEXAS JIM LEWIS Cattle 81 Squaws Along The Yukon ● LP $13.98

"BIG BILL" LISTER Cowgirlboy 5104 Countryfied ● LP $13.98
The title of the album tells you what you can expect. Bill was a good buddy of Hank Williams and even toured with him. Good honky tonk country sound with fiddle and steel guitar and a powerful Hillbilly voice make this LP a must for every Hank Williams fan. Two of the tracks on this list were written by Hank but no recorded commercially by him.
BIG BILL LISTER: A Nickel for a Dozen Roses/ All I Want Is to Hear You Say You Love Me/ Beer Drinking Blues/ Blowing the Suds off My Beer/ Countryfied/ Every Tear I Cry/ In the Shadow of the Pine/ One More Beer (Then I'm Goin' Home)/ R C Cola and Moon Pie/ Ship of Love/ The Little House We Built (Just o'er the Hill)/ There's Another in Your Heart./ There's a Tear in My Beer/ What the Heck Is Goin' On

LULU BELLE & SCOTTY Cowgirlboy 5069 Sweethearts Of The Barn Dance ● LP $13.98
This LP represents the WLS Chicago stars at their peak-late 40's/ early 50's. Side A was compiled of very rare Republic studiowise recorded transcriptions backed by the Prairie Ramblers while Side B offers you original commercial tracks backed by standard studio musicians as steeler Jerry Byrd and probably Louie Innis (rhythm guitar) and The Turner Brothers (lead guitar and bass).
