Product Description

Grady Martin was one of a handful of legendary country musicians who became much sought after session players in Nashville in the years following World War II. A creative and marvelous guitar picker, he appears on countless records (both hit and also-ran) by the big names of country music. He occasionally made a few records under his own name, and this new compilation from the British Archive import label brings together 28 tracks, mostly “hot” instrumentals that were recorded for the Decca label between 1951 and 1957. The tunes are not only country pieces like COLUMBUS STOCKADE BLUES, SIOUX CITY SUE, MEXICALI ROSE and SWEETHEARTS OR STRANGERS but also pop standards like STAR DUST, SEPTEMBER SONG, CHICAGO and ALLEGHENY MOON. If you like western swing, small “swing” combos or “hot” country riffs, you will most likely enjoy most, if not all, of this welcome record. Our only complaint is that it does not list personnel—I think Tommy Jackson is among the other players, but there’s little data provided
