Frank Wilson & His Blue Ridge Mountain Trio - Columbia 15372-D
Frank Wilson & His Blue Ridge Mountain Trio / Columbia 15372-D
Polly Ann / Katy-Did Waltz
recorded February 20, 1929 in New York City, New York
Here is one more disc that was the only side recorded by a group. The pickers are Charlie Bowman on fiddle, Frank Wilson on slide guitar and Walter Bowman on banjo. All these men recorded in other combinations with other groups. The slide guitar sound, which I`m sure is played lap style here, gives this combination a unique sound. Then with the addition of finger picked banjo gives them a sort of a parlor music sound to me. My copy of this disc is in decent shape, though both sides start kind of noisy but get better as they play. It`s plenty listenable. Happy downloading!
