I'm usually pretty suspect of "tourist" LPs, but these guys looked interesting, and the album had some great song titles. I was not let down, for here is Jamaican mento recorded in when first wave ska was the craze. It was an education for me, as I was not terribly familiar with this wonderful genre, which is referred to in Jamaica as "country music", and in some ways is to Reggae what American country music is to Rock.

First released by Gusto as a 2 LP set in the seventies, this collection presented 30 well, 29 classics from the legendary Starday-King catalog. It has since become a sort of a classic in itself, as it's never been to hard to obtain. It has probably appeared in every format, eventually even CD.
The only real flaw in the collection was that it included the same recording twice under two different titles. This is a really important collection of southern fiddle tunes. Some of the LPs this material are drawn from have Fiddlin' Arthur Smith and will Chubby Wise be featured in their entirety at the Attic, but there are many great recordings here that are otherwise hard to find.

Tom and the All Stars were a very popular band in Eastern Ontario during the late fifties onward. In the eighties Wilson produced this tape in honour of his departed fiddler, "The Johnnie Woods Album".
It is comprised of tracks from the All Stars' old Banff albums as well as radio airshots. As a bonus I have included "The St. This tune became a regional hit and remain's Wilson's theme song to this day. Woods tackles a few bluegrass numbers here, but the bulk of this is good old Ontario fiddling.
Some of the tunes are his own compositions. John Woods is not one of the big names remembered by fans of Canadian fiddling, but he's a great fiddler who should be heard more. I hope this post is enjoyed as much as I enjoyed transferring it! I love it. Thanks UM! That was some mighty fine dobro. When I was little it was in the parking lot of Thriftymart. When my mom was inside shopping, I would go to the Bahookka at sit on the anti-aircraft gun they had out front.
It was on a turret that you could swivel left and right, up and down. It's still in the front of the place that's in the Rosemead location. I just saw it the other day. It was at the Kennedy Center, and they brought all the tables from The Birchmere the club in Virginia where they played every week and set them up behind the band on the stage. Not the cleanest, but played with heart.
But I don't know who is with Buck and Don. I've only been there two or three times, but I'm glad I made it at least once. We went there the day before they closed, which also happened to be the day after my father passed away. It was our version of a wake. Time for me to grab a bite and start driving. I got to shake Dolly's hand in '94 marching band was in a Dollywood parade. Never been where this music comes from but it makes me feel like I was born there too.
I think I did a literal double-take. I saw it one day when I was looking for an urgent care to deal my hives. Franchise Tax Board woo hoo! Real destination. You're on the dime. Glad you dug it. You trying to butter me up Uncle Michael? Of course, Dylan "borrowing" melody is no big news or any folk musician ,for that matter.
You're amazing, Michael. I have a picture of Kim making a menacing monster claw at me! And I guessed the right Michael! Tampa Red-Kingfish Blues 4. Tampa Red-Mean Mistreater Blues 5.

Other Heritage Corner selections came from The Johnson Mountain Boys , I own the majority of recordings of Delia Bell and Bill Grant and brought some of them out of the Heritage Corner archives to play several of their songs throughout the show. We hope you will consider joining us for Radiothon. You never know what is going to happen! On Sunday's show, we celebrated two notable musical anniversaries, as well as played a few songs for a February holiday that happens this coming Friday First, the musical anniversaries.
Unless you've been away from all media for the last several months, you're likely quite aware that it was fifty years ago -- specifically, on Sunday, February 9, -- that the Beatles made their American television debut on "The Ed Sullivan Show," and the world of rock and roll music was set on its ear.
Truth to be told, the Beatles were THE band to impact so many of today's musicians and fans of great music, and while the Beatles clearly were not Bluegrass performers, they sure impacted a whole bunch of Bluegrass musicians. Hi Folks, and Merry Christmas. At the start of this show Marti and I knew we would be playing a good number of Christmas-themed bluegrassy songs with our usual mix, but as the show progressed we found that it was easy to make the whole show Christmas-themed because of all the great Christmas bluegrass music available.
We didn't totally forsake the non-Christmas music, though, so I'm hopeful the mix was enjoyable for our listeners. Morris Herbert passed away October 17 at age 81, and this year is the th anniversary of the birth of Oswald Dec. Oswald, who died in , was a pioneer of the resophonic guitar in country music and had his greatest impact during his long tenure with Roy Acuff. Amy will make the banjos, fiddles, and sleigh bells ring next Sunday, so be sure to tune in. It's a new month at the BG Cafe , and since it's December, that means it's really time to break out the Christmas music.
It is comprised of recordings of Earl's old "Serenade Ranch" show which was broadcast live over CKNX from to , only seven of the programs having been saved on transcriptions. These were rather crudely edited to create the program here, with what sounds to be mostly later commentary by Earl, and some mighty annoying applause and crowd noise which is certainly not original.
However, this is still a fascinating document of early Canadian country radio, especially in light of how little of this type of material is extant. The performances here are top notch, with Earl and his wife Martha accompanied by "the fiddling champions" Mel Levigne and Ward Allen who we also hear sing harmony!
Includes a scan of the cassette insert. Sides One and Two are included as individual mp3s of the continuous program. Posted by Lonesome Lefty at PM 4 comments. This LP on Dewey Groom's Longhorn label transferred from a 's reissue features the legendary Bob Wills in a wonderfully relaxed setting, recalling fiddle tunes of his youth with a small group of musicians.
As the liner notes state: This recording was made with one microphone strategically suspended above the group as they sat in the studio reminiscing over several cups of coffee.An online resource for information on all things Bluegrass in southern New England from the folks at WHUS Radio's "Bluegrass Cafe."
