ALONZO "DITTO" MARSH Cowgirlboy 5124 Canada's "Radio Ranger" ● LP $13.98
The late Alonzo has one golden Canadian throat. Although signed to a major label he never made it for one reason or another. It must also be noted that his Records are that rare these days that collectors had mainly only tapes of this material which were provided for this LP. Alonzo sings to his guitar, but steel guitar is occasionally heard as well. Early 50s material!

BENNY MARTIN Cowgirlboy 5137 Star Of The Grand Ole Opry ● LP $13.98

DUDE MARTIN & HIS ROUNDUP GANG Cowgirlboy 5148 Dude Martin & His Roundup gang ● LP $13.98
All of these songs were recorded around 1950. Dude's music is exactly in the style of Tex Williams and his voice is just that great, so it remains a mystery, why he didn't make it. It's a top LP for all Western swing and boogie fans.

COWBOY SAM NICHOLS Cattle 110 Cowboy Sam Nichols With The Melody Range ● LP $13.98
Texas singer Sam Nichols enjoyed modest West Coast success in the late 40's, first with the tiny Memo label in 1946 then for MGM.

He and Guthrie used some of the same sidemen - Porky Freeman(elec.g), Red Murrell & Billy Hughes(g), Al Barker(b), Curly Cochran(stl.g) & Jesse Ashlock on hot swing fiddle.

ELAYNE OTTERSON Lucky Lady 3004 Feelings Of A Country Girl ● LP $13.98
Elayne is not an unknown. She already released an LP album in Nashville in 1986. 2 of the best songs of the first LP are included in this LP but the remainder of 10 tracks were recorded in 1989 exclusively for Lucky Lady Records. All songs were written by Elayne and recorded in Nashville. With personnel names like Buddy Spicher (fiddle), Jim Baker (steel guitar and Dobro), Hargus "Pig" Robbins (piano) you can expect a perfect nowadays sound which is kept pretty much "country"...but what about the singer? She's got a warm, dark voice with a lot of good country feeling. She does not imitate anyone but if she had recorded back in the 1960's she could have been as successful as a Jean Shepard or a Norma Jean...perhaps even more than that since does an excellent job as a songwriter, too!

THE POE SISTERS Cattle 122 Early Stars Of The Grand Ole Opry ● LP $13.98
The Poe Sisters were discovered by George D. Hay in the 1940's. All songs on this album were done on the Grand Ole Opry in Ernest Tubb's segment of the show.

It's the first time that this Sister duo is on a record, and the original lacquer discs were cut for a personal memory only from 1944 to 1946. Ruth plays mandolin and Nelle guitar. They perform exactly in the style of the "Blue Sky Boys". If they hadn't disbanded because of marriage in the 1940's I guess they could have been the "female" Blue Sky Boys.
