Wyatt and Brandon - Columbia 15523-D
Wyatt and Brandon / Columbia 15523-D
Evalina / Lover`s Farewell
recorded October 21,1921 in Johnson City, Tennessee
Howard Wyatt and Luke Brandon were members of the well known old time string band The Roane County Ramblers from Tennessee. This is the only record this duet made.
Evalina was a pretty popular song to the ancient folk tune of Poor Babes In The Woods and may be of old English origins.
Lover`s Farewell is an old love type song and was recorded by people such as The Carter Family, Bill Cox, Lake Howard and The Shelton Brothers. It certainly has the sound of a Carter Family song though!
The sound quality of this disc is pretty good for as rough condition as the disc is in. A good bit of crackle will be heard but the music is plenty easily listened to.
