Collector Marshall Wyatt has issued several neat re-issues on his Old Hat label, and here is another --a beautifully packaged 24-track compilation of songs about chickens taken from old 78s. After a few smiles and a look at the impressive 20- page booklet of notes, you can delve into various pieces here --they are both fun and fascinating examples of what was available on record back in the late 1920s and 30s. The material presented is not just rural numbers (Riley Puckett, Cliff Carlisle and the Binkley Brothers), but as the booklet proclaims the album includes Blues, Breakdowns, Minstrel Sketches, Imitations, Tin Pan Alley Songs and some double entendre songs. A few of the other artists include Gene Autry, Beale Street Sheiks, George Edgin, Peg Leg Howell, Tune Wranglers, Teddy Bunn, The Georgia Browns, etc. Lots of fun here!
