VARIOUS 'Guys Of The Big "D" Jamboree'

  • $13.50


This is a follow-up to Dragon Street’s very impressive 2-CD set of 1950’s recordings made at Dallas BIG D JAMBOREE radio show. Musically this new 30-song anthology is not as successful, though there is some good typical country music of the period by such artists as Riley Crabtree, Frankie Miller, Leroy Jenkins, Mitchell Torok, Orrile Couch, and Gene O’Quinn. The exciting rockabilly cuts that made the first set so interesting are not present to any degree here. Perhaps the most important tracks here are 2 songs from demos by Lefty Frizzell that he never commercially recorded, STEPPING OUT and ALWAYS IN LOVE. Presentation here is first-rate, with and excellent 36-page booklet filled with photos and a good set of notes by Kevin Coffey.
