Incredibly, after all these years, there's still some prime unissued Western Swing to be heard... and Bear Family has it! Thirty-one previously unissued recordings by the giants of Western Swing's golden age:
Bob Wills, Adolph Hofner, Roy Newman, and others! Some of these titles were probably withheld because they were too risqu sound like the most fun ever had on record!
Spanning 1935-42, this exciting collection brings together 31 previously unissued tracks from the Western Swing's greatest years. It features some of the music's biggest names, including Bob Wills & his
Texas Playboys, Adolph Hofner, Al Dexter, Roy Newman & his Boys, Leon Selph & his Blue Ridge Playboys, the Hi-Flyers and Ocie Stockard & his Wanderers. Groups that defined Western Swing before it even had a name! Sidemen include country legends like Leon McAuliffe and Moon Mullican!
'Previously Unissued' often implies substandard recordings. Not so here! This is full top-notch Western Swing by some of the music's best-ever performers. Hot stuff on par with - or better than - issued performances! Songs include You Ought To See My Fanny Dance, She Can't Be Satisfied, Fruit Wagon Gal, Around The Corner At Smokey Joe's, Who Comes In At My Back Door, Hash House Hattie, and
Look Who's Squawkin'. You get the idea!
