CLIFF CARLISLE 'Far Beyond The Starry Sky' BACM-032-CD

Add To Wishlist

A nice and representative collection of 20 songs by the elder Carlisle, cut between 1931 and 1939. Carlisle was one of the very first to feature the Hawaiian guitar, and vocally was heavily influenced by Jimmie Rodgers (hear ONION EATING MAMA on this disc). On a good number of tracks he is accompanied by his brother Bill on guitar, and his son, "Sonny Boy Tommy". The material is taken from A.R.C., Bluebird, and Decca 78s and includes some fine cuts like SHINE ON ME, BLIND CHILD'S PRAYER, GIRL IN THE BLUE VELVET BAND and BRAKEMAN'S REPLY. LONELY ORPHAN CHILD, GOING BACK TO ALABAMA, GEORGIA MOON, etc.
