More Western Swing
I meant to post these ages ago as a folow up to my previous post, but with illness and holidays, I'm just getting back into my comfy chair now, and well ... hear you go. The First is a Tune Deke and The Boys would thrive on. Tex Williams from 1950 and originally out on Capitol - it was co-written by Buddy Ebsen (better known as Jed Clampett The Beverly Hillbilly).
The song itself is a Nifty Riverboat Gambling Tale.
There ought to be a compilation for YasYasYas records. I can think of about four in the Attic here, and they are all entertaining, The Sweet Violet Boys, recorded in 1937 is no exception. Aparently they were known as The Prairie Ramblers on their less risqué songs!
Both tracks are from the aforementioned Properbox 83 - Stompin' Singers and Western Swingers.
