Carl Conner - Columbia 15076-D


Carl Conner / Columbia 15076-D
Jones And Bloodworth Case / Story Of Gerald Chapman
recorded April 23, 1926 in Atlanta, Georgia
Here`s another artist that recorded only one disc. I have no information about Mr. Conner. Both of the songs are topical type songs about murders. I haven`t done an internet search about the cases, I doubt it`d be too difficult to read about these cases.

Grandpa Jones - The Man From Kentucky


Here`s a neat Grandpa Jones LP, all the tracks are taken from the old color Gannaway "Country Show" TV show from the early 1950`s. For most Grandpa Jones fans there`s not going to be anything new on this LP, but it`s a good one just the same.

Wright Brotheres complete Columbia recordings


Wright Brothers Quartet / Columbia 15402-D
God`s Message To Man / What A Glad Day
recorded April 17, 1929 in Atlanta, Georgia
Here`s another group I know nothing about. Interesting they call theirselves "brothers" when there is obviously a woman`s voice in the mix. They sound like what I`d imagine hearing at a country church at the time. The mandolin is kind of a neat sound for them. I think all the songs would have been common at the time in Stamps Baxter type song books, which would have been commonly found in country churches then, as now.

Andy Griffith - Just For Laughs


Here`s a little countrified comedy. Any Griffith`s comedy on albums kind of reminds me of some of Archie Campbell`s material. One thing they both did was to make a story out of a country boy seeing something in the city for the first time that he`s never saw or heard of before. Here, Andy Griffith describes a football game, Archie Campbell done a hockey game. I wonder which had the idea first, or if either one even wrote the story on their own, or borrowed it elsewhere. Anyhow... happy listening!

Elry Cash - complete Columbia recordings


Elry Cash / Columbia 15399-D
My Old New Hampshire Home / Won`t You Come Back To Me
recorded April 18, 1929 in Atlanta, Georgia
Sorry, I have no information on Elry Cash. My Old New Hampshire Home is an old "left my love in my hometown" type love song. Won`t You Come Back To Me is familiar to me as a Riley Puckett song similar to this under a different title that I can`t bring to mind at the moment.


Elry Cash / Columbia 15457-D
Then My Love Began To Wane / When You`re In The Graveyard And I`m Away Downtown In Jail
recorded same as above
Both tunes on this disc are sort of a comedy love songs.

The Leverette Bros. - Lonesome Mandolin


Here`s a pretty neat LP. These guys are sort of in the style of the 1930`s brothers acts, but are also entertainers with comedy and broom playing. I`m not going to try to tell you about playing the broom, just download the music and check out the LP pictures. Happy downloading!
