The collector CDs of the Dutchman do contain vintage gems. Here we have Arvis McRae & the Texas Keys for the marvelous « Me And My Love« . Fine fiddle and guitar solos. Echo on vocal. Great rural Hillbilly Bop! It comes from Texarkana on the Ranger label.
Then in Virginia for a rare instrumental on mandolin by Phebel Wright, « Lint Head Stomp« . Cut for Essex Records in 1946. It’s a tour de force: who influenced Bill Monroe? Wright appeared later (gospel recordings) on a Bryte EP.
Less and less known now are Earl Wright and « Married Man Blues« or Sid Triplett’s « Married Life Blues » – surely two songs aimed at married men!
Many rare selections this time. I hope you enjoy every tune. Comments welcome!
