This country group was popular enough in the mid-west in the 1940s to have recorded a fair number of songs for the Columbia label. They are best known to Bluegrass fans for their two most popular hits LIVE AND LET LIVE and WHEN MY BLUE MOON TURNS TO GOLD AGAIN --both recorded by Bill Monroe among others. LIVE & LET LIVE is included here, along with 19 other songs, though for some reason WHEN MY BLUE MOON is not included on this CD --a key disappointment. The rest of the songs are typical 1940s country/ western, with fiddle, guitar and accordion accompaniment. Several of the songs have a negative cast to them, such as I'M TIRED OF MOUNTAIN WOMEN, NO LOVE FOR YOU, I JUST DON'T WANT TO BE HAPPY and I'M TIRED OF SAYING WE'RE THROUGH. There are a couple of interesting live radio show segments done at WKY in Oklahoma City. Most successful are the early cuts of LITTLE RUBBER DOLLY and WEDNESDAY NIGHT WALTZ.
