Time zone: central
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.
The Dillards “Walkin' Down the Line”
from There Is a Time (1963-70) (Vanguard 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).
Marty Rabon “That's One”
from Full Circle (Doobie Shea 2003) —Marty is part of the lineup for the Feed the Need benefit show June 8th at the Alton Amphitheater that also includes Marty Stuart, The Expedition Show and The Harmans. For tickets seniorservicesplus.com
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.
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?
Merle Haggard “If I Could Only Fly” (Anti/Epitaph 2000) —A fine version of Blaze Foley's masterpiece, going out to Tom Mason.
Mandy Heinemann “Hillbilly Girl with the Blues”
from The Real Me (Right Side Up Records 2013) N L —One written by Lacy J. Dalton. Mandy lives in nearby southern Illinois and was in our town last evening. She plays with Nine Mile Creek and the River Ridge Band. Gary Gordon produced this album.
