RILEY PUCKETT 'There's A Hard Time Coming'

RILEY PUCKETT 'There's A Hard Time Coming'

  • $15.00


A welcome release here from this British label, since there’s so little on the market currently of Puckett, one of the most prominent musicians of rural music’s golden age. Yet the selection of songs is questionable: Puckett was a fine singer but he recorded a lot of marginal material both for Columbia in the 1920’s and for the Bluebird label in the 30’s. Though there are some nice cuts here with Ted Hawkins and Clayton McMichen, and some good solos, the over all selection does not present Puckett at his strongest. The 21 songs include DOWN IN ARKANSAS, DREAM TRAIN, OH SUSANNA, ORPHAN GIRL, ALABAMA GAL, LITTLE SIR ECHO, ALTOONA FREIGHT WRECK, etc.
