Ed Hyde - Square Dance Album
Here`s a pretty good fiddle album. Ed Hyde was the fiddler for the Crook Brothers on the Grand Ole Opry I believe for most of the sixties and into the mid seventies when he passed away. I really don`t know any more about him other than what is on this LP cover.
His style is sort or bluegrass with definate old-time fiddle roots, like many of the early bluegrass fiddlers that came out of the thirties. The back up pickers are bluegrass style players. Too bad he didn`t make this record with the Crook Brothers backing him up, that would have been great (and better in my opinion).
Give this LP a listen and hear an old Opry legend, albeit possibly an unknown one.
The songs on side two are not in the same order as listed on the cover, so here is a correct track list---
Ten Minutes Of Continuous Playing
Five Minuets Of Continuous Playing
Flop Eared Mule
