This old time bandÑwhich was at its peak of popularity in the mid and late 1920sÑ was more prolific than most collectors realize. Working out of a mill town outside Atlanta, the group recorded over 30 tunesÑall instrumentals and all featuring a ragtime style of 2 guitars and 2 mandolins. The groupÕs members were not ace musicians by any means, but there was obviously a market for their music, most of which featured well known tunes like SILVER BELL, CHINESE BREAKDOWN, DOWN YONDER and MY IONA. The CD is nicely presented with excellent notes by Tony Russell.
