Charlie Collins & Friends LP on the Royal American label
Charlie Collins passed away Thursday, January 12th. So, I thought I`d post this LP he made in the 1970`s. Charlie did have a cd out with this title, and some of these songs are on it, but not all the titles are the same.
Charlie played guitar for Roy Acuff, starting in about 1967 till Roy passed away. Also, Bashful Brother Oswald and Charlie made a team of their own that toured some by theirselves for many years. Charlie was one of the best rhythm guitar players. He was also a flat picked guitar virtuoso. He was also quite good on fiddle and mandolin and was a good singer.
I met Charlie several times in the last 8 years or so, and he was a great guy. One of the nicest, most polite people I ever met.
There is one thing a lttle odd about this LP. They misspelled Charlie`s first name as Charley. Oh Well, everything can`t be perfect!
