MONROE FIELDS WITH CARL SAUCEMAN AND THE GREEN VALLEY BOYS '1950s-60s Broadcasts' PATUX-259-CD

$15.99

The Patuxent label has been bringing us lots of well produced, interesting projects in the past year or two, both Bluegrass and Old-Time music. Among them have been some welcome albums like this one, which presents 13 songs "rescued" from old radio shows of the 1950s & early 60s. Presenting Fields as the headliner is actually somewhat misleading, because it was really Carl Sauceman and the Green Valley Boys' band, and Monroe Fields was just the mandolin player and vocalist. But no matter: it is still good to be able to hear what a typical country/Bluegrass band sounded like on its radio shows of the period. And Carl Sauceman's group was a regionally popular outfit, though it didn't make that many commercial recordings. In addition to Fields, the other members of the band here were Jim Brock (fiddle), Fred Richardson or Buddy Rose on banjo, J.P. Sauceman on bass and Carl Sauceman on guitar & tenor vocal. A good record here with excellent notes by Dick Spottswood.
