  • $17.00


A wonderful treat here for fans of this great country band: the German Bear Family label has obtained and nicely presented these 19 cuts taken from 1948 radio transcriptions done while Johnnie & Jack were members of the KWKH "Louisiana Hayride" in Shreveport, LA. This shows the duo at its down-home best, with a sound similar to its King 78s (as KING'S SACRED QUARTET) and the very early RCA-Victors. Nice backup fiddle by Paul Warren (he is also featured on 4 fiddle tunes) and dobro by Ray Atkins add greatly to the fine, distinctive sound, and it's great to hear Kitty Wells sing LOVE OR HATE, SINGING WATERFALL, and THE DEATH OF KATHY FISCUS, plus Johnnie & Jack tackle songs like NO LETTER IN THE MAIL, LITTLE CABIN HOME ON THE HILL, WHITE DOVE, I HEARD MY MOTHER WEEPING, and IT'S RAINING ON THE MOUNTAIN. With a nice booklet of notes, this is great listening from start to finish.
