TERRY ROBBINS ....NEW RELEASE.......LOVE FRONT....Very Highly Recommended
SPADE COOLEY & His Western Dance Band Vol 1 Live 1944-46. CD411
These amazing air checks feature Cooley's classic Columbia Records-era band, with vocals by Tex Williams, Smokey Rogers, Colleen Summers (AKA, Mary Ford) and others. A particular highlight is the presence of steel guitar wizard Joaquin Murphey heard at his very best. The live setting gives Murphey, fiddling leader Spade and other instrumental stalwarts like electric guitarist Johnny Weis and accordionist George Bamby plenty of room to shine. LISTING; Shame On You/ Swingin? The Devil?s Dream (Instr.)/ Please Don?t Leave Me/ Riverside Drive (Instr.)/ San Fernando Valley/ Take Me Back To Tulsa/ Red Wing (Instr)/ My Confession/ Oklahoma Hills/ Limehouse Blues/ I Wish I Knew/ Listen To The Mockingbird (Instr.)/ You Don?t Love Me (But I?ll Always Care)/ Copenhagen (Instr.)/ My Adobe Hacienda/ Yodelin?

It will be remembered that COOLEY was touted as THE KING OF WESTERN SWING, when fans of BOB WILLS weren't around. 22 PERFORMANCES. Good quality. RECOMMENDED to COOLEY fans and western swing enthusiasts.
