Howdy y’all, folks. A little bit late, back from holidays. Here is my new choice of favorites. As usual, a selection of tunes of the great era.
HARRY HANSON on the Louisiana Empire label (# 795, a Starday custom) with « Just remember » from 1959. Fine primitive hillbilly bop which could well have been cut 3 or 4 years earlier.

Cal Davis, « Partnership love affair » download
From Detroit on Fortune 185, CAL DAVIS and rockabilly « Partnership love affair« , complete with steel and guitar.
Two sides by the very good EUEL HALL from Texas, on the Towne House label (# 11). Lazy vocal, assuring guitar for « Blue feeling » and « Stand in line« . Cross between hillbilly bop and rockabilly.
BILLY BARNETT now and the minor classic « Tired of your honky tonk love » on the Phoenix Tex label (# 105). Fine guitar.
And finally, a fast bluegrass bopper by KEN CLARK, « Big man » on Starday 495 from 1960. Great banjo and mandolin backing. Ken Clark was also on the Nashville label (see elsewhere in the site).
