The Texas Troubadors “Buddy's Boogie (intro)”
from Almost To Tulsa (Bear Family 2008)


Ernest Stoneman, Kahle Brewer and Walter Mooney “Dying Girl's Farewell”
from RCA Country Legends: The Bristol Sessions (Sony BMG 2002) —Recorded the first day of the Bristol Sessions, July 25, 1927.


The Carter Family “Little Log Cabin by the Sea”
from Wildwood Flower: 25 Country Classics (ASV 2000) —Recorded on the first day of the Carter Family's Bristol Sessions, August 1, 1927.


Jimmie Rodgers “Jimmie Rodger's Last Blue Yodel”
from RCA Country Legends (BMG Heritage 2002) —Not recorded at the Bristol Sessions. This was recorded exactly 80 years ago today on May 18, 1933 and Jimmie is in remarkable voice considering he died eight days later of tuberculosis.


Kenny Baker “Bluegrass in the Backwoods”
from Frost on the Pumpkin (County 2002) —Recorded in 1976, one of Kenny's compositions with a clear Slavic influence. I don't think Mr. Monroe taught him this one.


Tommy Jarrell “Soldier's Joy”
from The Legacy of Tommy Jarrell, Vol. 1: Sail Away Ladies (County 1999) —Nowhere in these otherwise fine liner notes does it say when Tommy recorded the tunes in this volume.


Scotty Stoneman “Sally Goodin”
from Live in L.A.! (Rural Rhythm Records 2002) —Scotty was the first (and maybe only) jam band fiddler.


Mark O'Connor and Johnny Gimble “Fiddlin' Around”
from Heroes (Warner 1992) —Johnny introduces the band during the song and what a band it is.


The Dillards “Walkin' Down the Line”
from There Is a Time (1963-70) (Vanguard www.vanguardrecords.com 1991) —One written by Bob Dylan, who has a birthday next Friday. Has to be one of the earliest (if not the earliest) bluegrass covers of Dylan).


Peter Rowan “That's All She Wrote”
from The Old School (Compass Records www.compassrecords.com 2013) N  —Del on harmony vocals, with sons Ronnie and Rob, Alan Bartram and Michael Cleveland.


Jim Gaudet and the Railroad Boys “Darkside of Lonesome”

Rosanne Cash “Girl From The North Country”
from The List (Manhattan 2009) —Another one from the pen of Mr. Dylan, which he and Rosanne's daddy recorded for Nashville Skyline. She did a fine version of this at the Sheldon a week ago.

Dave Alvin “Railroad Bill”

Kitty Wells “It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tong Angels”
from Country Music Hall Of Fame (MCA 1991) —Written by J.D. Miller and recorded this day in 1952. You can't very well play one without the other, can you?


Ray Price and the Cherokee Cowboys “City Lights”
from The Essential Ray Price 1951-62 (Sony 1991) —Written by Bill Anderson and recorded 55 years ago in 1958 for Columbia. Ray was recently in the hospital for dehydration and we wish him well.
