VARIOUS ARTISTS 'Country Music On The Gold Star Label'

Product Description

Gold Star was one of the regional labels that sprung up right after World War II— based in Houston, Texas, it featured not only local country music, but Blues, Polka , Tex-Mex and Cajun music as well. This 28-song anthology has one or two cuts each by mostly obscure regional country artists. Some may recognize a few of the names such as Eddie Noack, Hank Locklin, Aubrey Gass and of course the well-known Cajun fiddler & singer Harry Choates. There’s also a rare surprise track by Ray & Ina Patterson (SUNNY SIDE OF LIFE), a fine husband & wife duet in the Blue Sky Boys style who later recorded 3 wonderful LPs for the County label. Though there are no real gems here (apart from the Ray & Ina and Harry Choates cuts), the album is a good survey of typical country sounds from the Southwest in the late 1940s, and the notes by Phillip Tricker give some good background to the artists & tunes. $ 15.00
