A marvelous collection of 16 songs from radio transcriptions made in the 50s and early 60s by this outstanding singer. Shephard's singing and the instrumental accompaniments are pure honky tonk.

One of the best albums on this label. (FS)

LUKE SIMMONS Cowgirlboy 5042 And In His Blue Mountain Boys ● LP $13.98
Country music from New Zealand? Strange but true, and it's quite good too! Luke Simmons was originally from Canada though he moved to New Zealand a while before these recordings were made and I assume the rest of his band is from New Zealand. Simmons is a decent singer, very much in the Wilf Carter vein and his band provides some solid accompaniments with some very nice steel guitar. Most of the songs are originals including Hey Baby/ Down Where The Meadowlarks Sing/ Drifting On The Sea Of Love/ Deep Sea Jamboree/ Cup Of Joy, etc. This album was out some years ago on another label so you might want to check your collection.

JIMMIE SKINNER Cowgirlboy 5060 Sings Jimmie Rodgers ● LP $13.98
Reissue of long out of print album featuring 12 songs of the country music pioneer Rodgers performed by Cincinatti singer Jimmie Skinner. The interpretations are quite pleasant with very nice Dobro by Rusty York though Skinner's vocals are a little colorless. (FS)
