The Lonesome Pine Fiddlers may not have been one of the biggest groups in the big bluegrass explosion of the postwar years – but they were certainly one of the tightest, as you'll hear on this great collection of tracks recorded for the Starday label! The instrumentation is really center stage here – even though the vocals are quite strong too – and the group features Curly Ray Cline on fiddle, Melvin Goines on rhythm guitar, and Ray Goins on some mighty nice banjo work – which riffles on at amazing speed and really drives the tunes. Some tracks feature Jack Linneman on dobro, and Hylo Brown adds in both open string guitar and some harmony vocals – on tunes that include "Hobo Blues", "Lost Girl", "Bringin In The Georgia Mail", "Coal Dust Blues", "Road Hog Red", "Ya'll Come", and "Old Homestead Ain't So Homey Anymore".

You might know Ace Records as home to a fair bit of jazz, funk, and soul reissues over the years – but right from the start, the label's also had a keen ear for rockabilly – and can boast a decades-long devotion to the music, with releases that have really blown us away! This set digs back over material that Ace has reissued in previous decades – cuts that are both rare original singles, or unissued tracks – from important labels like Starday, Chess, Goldband, and Meteor – all hand-picked by Keb Darge – another British force in turning us on to great music over the years! The vinyl-only collection is full of gems – and titles include "All Dressed Up" by Jimmy Johnson, "Let's Go Bopping Tonight" by Al Ferrier & His Bopping Billies, "Nuthin But A Nuthin" by Jimmy Stewart & His Nighthawks, "Blue Jeans & A Boy's Shirt" by Glen Glenn, "The Woman I Love" by Gene Terry & His Kook Kats, "Jello Sal" by Benny Ingram, "Lonesome Baby Blues" by David Ray, and "Do Me No Wrong" by Pat Cupp & The Flying Saucers. LP, Vinyl record album
A very obscure single on People! The track wasn't produced by James Brown, but "Papa's Got The Wagon" has an excellent funky sound – with great raw vocals by Gloria in the tradition of Marva Whitney or Vicki Anderson! The cut was written by Juggy Murray, and done in other versions – but this is our favorite! The flipside is great, too – and is a very nice mellow soul track. 7-inch, Vinyl record
