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!
