Product Description

The Bailes Brothers were known for writing a lot of great country songs in the 1940s, and they had a fine, very distinctive style of singing and playing, too.  From the state of West Virginia, there were 4 of them—Walter, Johnnie, Kyle and Homer, and they appeared in different pairings on different recordings withy little or no change in  their sound. Their earliest and best recordings were made for the Columbia  label, and they later recorded for King—it is from the latter that this 20 song album is taken.  Actually, some of the cuts from their 1953 session are quite nice despite some sound problems.  Unfortunately this album mixes that material with some junky recordings that were made in 1973, resulting in a weak and pointless disc. On an album that is almost exclusively devoted to gospel songs, what on earth is a song like BULLFROG BOOGIE doing here?  This is not one of Gusto’s prouder moments, and we would urge anyone interested in this great group’s music to hunt out the wonderful Bear Family CD import of a few years back  (BCD-15973, $ 17.00).   This CD is no bargain, despite the price.                 $ 11.00
