Kirk McGee & Grady Sartain - Jo-Mar 45 #J-111
WOW! Here`s a find if you are a Kirk McGee fan! I had no idea this even existed. I know nothing about this disc or the Jo-Mar label. It would be interesting to know when this was recorded.
I have no idea who Grady Sartain was (or is, he could still be living I suppose). Indiana Blues is a pretty good tune with some good old-time finger-picked guitar. No credit is given to the musicians on this side, but the other side says "Acc. By-Grady Sartain & Sam McGee", so by that and my ear it`s definately Sam playing guitar on this side.
On The Pig Ankle Rag, we have Kirk playing the 5-string banjo, old time finger pickin` style as only Kirk could. This is a new favorite recording for me! Sam on guitar and I assume Grady Sartain is playing bass.
