1965 HAYRIDE



Wednesday, September 28, 2011

Country Music Week / Judy Lynn (MP3s)



Here are two highly alluring instrumental tracks from Judy Lynn's 1965 United Artists LP titled The Judy Lynn Show. Both numbers are highly atypical selections for a country performer, but thoroughly enjoyable all the same due in no small part to the exotic sounds produced by Gene O'Neal, the band's pedal steel guitarist.

Judy Lynn Show - Night Train (3:18)

Judy Lynn Show - Baby Elephant Walk (3:08)

COUNTRY and WESTERN


The Dixie Fun Barn Gang

Originating at WPDQ in Jacksonville, Fla., These folks performed on WAGA in Atlanta from September 1946 to December 1948. From there, they traveled to WQAM in Miami, then back to Atlanta on WGST from October 1949 to JAnuary 1950. Tommy Trent would subsequently join the Louisiana Hayride. Apologies to Tex Anderson and/or his descendants for the ink blot Partly obscuring his face... that's how I found it.

Thanks, Andy Turner!

RIP Johnnie Wright

Rest In Peace Johnnie Wright.



Johnny And Jack - Uncle John's Bongos (mp3)

The First Mrs. Jones

Porter Wagoner's The First Mrs. Jones is a perfect example of why he established a reputation for an artist who didn't shy away from intense topics. The song, written by Bill Anderson, is the story of a marriage gone bad and the resulting mayhem.

JOHNNY BOND WITH JOE MAPHIS



Louis Marshall Jones, Age 53


 An Opry star for twenty years, at this point he's still three years 
away from his Hee Haw debut.

In his secret identity, I think he kinda looks a bit like Redneck GReece.

What do you think?

Young Grandpa Jones and His Colleagues


Like Captain Kangaroo and Walter Brennan, Grandpa was already playing an old man when he was still in his twenties, and eventually grew into the part. This songbook is from 1942, 27 years before he'd first step before the Hee Haw cameras.
 The Jamboree is still on the air after almost 79 years(!), though the last decade has seen some bumps in the road.




Offhand, I don't recognize any of these folks except for Lew Childre, eventual Grand Ole Opry star and father of the noted fishing tackle magnate who shared his name.

More information about the Jamboree can be found here, here, and here.

She's All I Got (MP3)



Conway Twitty - She's All I Got


Here's Conway Twitty's 1972 version of She's All I Got, a huge hit a year earlier for Johnny Paycheck. Interestingly, Paycheck's version was a cover of pop singer Freddie North's original recording of the song, authored by Gary U.S. Bonds and Jerry Williams, known to you as Swamp Dogg.

Deke Dickerson & The Ecco-Fonics






Go behind the scenes with Deke, Sugarballs and Cialas, The Rockabilly Gorilla!

"Deke Dickerson and Chris "Sugarballs" Sprague prepare for their Fall 2011 Tour by recruiting a new bass player--a gorilla they found picking oranges for minimum wage. Through training and bribery, Grease Monkey The Rockabilly Gorilla becomes the new bass player for the band. This is the first installment in a tour diary documenting the exciting life on the road of rockabilly musician Deke Dickerson."


You can catch their act at the Rodeo Bar in NYC this Saturday night at 9:30.  Free!
