Melton and Waggoner - Columbia 15423-D


Melton and Waggoner / Columbia 15423-D
In The Hills Of Old Kentucky / Underneath The Cotton Moon
recorded October 30, 1928 in Atlanta, Georgia

Here is another entry of my collection where I have gathered all the output of an artist/group. This is the only disc recorded by this duet. I have no information about this duet, not even their first names. Their style leans towards the Jimmie Rodgers sound. In The Hills Of Old Kentucky was likely an old pop song I`d say. It`s still performed by bluegrass pickers. Underneath The Cotton Moon was also a pop tune that almost sounds like it could have been part of a vaudeville type musical. I believe Clayton McMichen also recorded this tune. My copy of this disc is in pretty decent condition, so the sound on this is pretty good. Happy downloading!

Two more Hery Whitter 78`s on the OKeh label


Here is a couple new discs I have recently acquired to add to the Henry Whitter posts from the past.


Henry Whitter / OKeh 40395
My Darling`s Black Mustache / The Clouds Gwine To Roll Away
recorded April 23/24, 1925 in New York City
My Darling`s Black Mustache is sort of a comic love song. The Clouds Gwine To Roll Away is sort of in the spiritual vein with a comic twist.






Henry Whitter / OKeh 40403
Love Me While I Am Living / Good-Bey, Old Booze
recorded at same session as OKeh 40395
Love Me While I Am Living is sort of a morbid love song. Good-Bye, Old Booze is an old comic song. This particular performance is Henry`s worst side I think. It`s in too high a key for his voice and his voice breaks. It`s worth hearing to hear how awful it is!

Homer And Jethro - Musical Madness


How about a little hillbilly humor today? Here is what I believe to be Homer and Jethro`s first LP. The label is Audio Lab, which I believe was a label name used by King, and I`m thinking all the tracks are from King issued 78`s. This is an old one, one of my great uncles gave it to me about 30 years ago and it`s a little noisy. This is one of the original group of records that started the "archive"! Enjoy and laugh!
