Grandpa Jones – The Banjo Am The Instrument For Me

Published on Jul 19, 2014

Louis Marshall Jones (October 20, 1913 — February 19, 1998), known professionally as Grandpa Jones, was an American banjo player and “old time” country and gospel music singer. He is a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame. Born in the farming community of Niagara in Henderson County, Kentucky, Jones spent his teenage years in Akron, Ohio, where he began singing country music tunes on a radio show on WJW. In 1931, Jones joined the Pine Ridge String Band, which provided the musical accompaniment for the very popular Lum and Abner show. By 1935 his pursuit of a musical career took him to WBZ (AM) radio in Boston, Massachusetts where he met musician/songwriter Bradley Kincaid, who gave him the nickname “Grandpa” because of his off-stage grumpiness at early-morning radio shows. Jones liked the name and decided to create a stage persona based around it. Performing as Grandpa Jones, he played the guitar, yodeled, and sang mostly old-time ballads. By 1937, Jones had made his way to West Virginia, where Cousin Emmy taught Jones the art of the clawhammer style of banjo playing, which gave a rough backwoods flavor to his performances. In 1942, Jones joined WLW in Cincinnati, Ohio. It was there that he met fellow Kentuckian Merle Travis. In 1943, the pair made their recording debuts together for Syd Nathan’s upstart King Records. Jones was making records under his own name for King by 1944 and had his first hit with “It’s Raining Here This Morning”.

His recording career was briefly put on hold when he enlisted in the Army. Upon his discharge in 1946, he was back recording for King. In March 1946, he moved to Nashville, Tennessee and started performing on the Grand Ole Opry. He also married Ramona Riggins on October 14, 1946. Ramona would not only remain his wife for the rest of his life, but, as an accomplished performer herself, would also be a part of his performances. Jones’ vaudevillian humor was a bridge to television entertainment. Some of his more famous songs include, “T For Texas”, “Are You From Dixie”, “Night Train To Memphis” and “Mountain Dew”. He also wrote the song “Eight More Miles To Louisville”.

In 1969, Jones became a charter cast member on the long-running television show Hee Haw, often responding to the show’s skits with his trademark phrase “Outrageous”. He also played banjo, either by himself or with fellow banjo player David “Stringbean” Akeman. Another musical segment featured in the early years of Hee Haw had Grandpa and “His lovely wife, Ramona” accompanying a song while ringing bells held in their hands and on Grandpa’s feet. A favorite skit had off-camera cast members asking “Hey Grandpa, what’s for supper?”, to which he would describe either a delicious, country-style meal (“Buttermilk biscuits smothered in chicken gravy, home-fried potatoes, collard greens and Grandmother’s fresh-baked blueberry pie à la mode!” and the cast would reply, “Yum, yum!”); or, occasionally, he would tell about something not so good, (“Because you were bad, thawed out TV dinners!” at which the cast would scoff, “Yuck!”); on one occasion, he said “I ain’t got nothing”, he was booed. A running gag was that the window he pretended to polish had no glass, and Jones would slip his fingers through the empty frame. He also joined cast mates Buck Owens, Roy Clark and Kenny Price in a gospel segment at the end of some shows.

Grandpa Jones!

Hee Haw!

Alvis Edgar Owens, Jr. (August 12, 1929 — March 25, 2006), better known as Buck Owens, was an American singer and guitarist who had 21 No. 1 hits on the Billboard country music charts with his band, the Buckaroos. They pioneered what came to be called the Bakersfield sound—a reference to Bakersfield, California, the city Owens called home and from which he drew inspiration for what he preferred to call American music. While Owens originally used fiddle and retained pedal steel guitar into the 1970s, his sound on records and onstage was always more stripped-down and elemental, incorporating elements of rock and roll. His signature style was based on simple storylines, infectious choruses, a twangy electric guitar, an insistent rhythm supplied by a drum track placed forward in the mix, and high two-part harmonies featuring Owens and his guitarist Don Rich. Beginning in 1969, Owens co-hosted the TV series Hee Haw with Roy Clark. He left the cast in 1986. In 1974, the accidental death of Rich, his best friend, devastated him for years and abruptly halted his career until he performed with Dwight Yoakam in 1988. Owens died on March 25, 2006 shortly after performing at his Crystal Palace restaurant, club and museum in Bakersfield.

The Browns – I Heard the Bluebirds Sing

OldTmye TunesFive
Published on Aug 30, 2014

The Browns were an American country and folk music vocal trio best known for their 1959 Grammy-nominated hit, “The Three Bells”. The group, composed of Jim Ed Brown and his sisters Maxine and Bonnie Brown, had a close, smooth harmony characteristic of the Nashville sound, though their music also combined elements of folk and pop. They disbanded in 1967. James Edward, older sister Maxine, and younger sister Bonnie Brown sang individually in Pine Bluff, Arkansas until 1954, when Maxine and Jim Ed signed a record contract as a singing duo. They earned national recognition and a guest spot on Ernest Tubb’s radio show for their self-penned song “Looking Back to See”, which hit the top ten and stayed on the charts through the summer of 1954. The song would be a hit again nearly 20 years later for Buck Owens and Susan Raye in 1972.

awww… times were sure different then.

Don’t remember ever hearing these two at all … guess maybe they didn’t go national? I have no idea.

Bummer! Because… I dig ‘em!

Please visit Robert Crumb here: crumbproducts.com
R. Crumb and his Cheap Suit Serenaders are an American retro string band playing songs from, and in the style of, the 1920s: old-time music, ragtime, “evergreen” jazz standards, western swing, country blues, hokum, vaudeville and medicine show tunes. Their three 33⅓ rpm albums, all recorded in the 1970s on the Blue Goose label, were titled R. Crumb and his Cheap Suit Serenaders (1974), R. Crumb and his Cheap Suit Serenaders No.2 (1976), and R. Crumb and his Cheap Suit Serenaders No.3 (1978); the latter two have been reissued on the Shanachie label as Chasin’ Rainbows and Singing In the Bathtub respectively. As a novelty, they issued a number of 78 rpm 10-inch singles for Blue Goose, long after the format was obsolete. The most familiar is probably R. Crumb and his Cheap Suit Serenaders’ Party Record (1980), with the double-entendre “My Girl’s Pussy” on the “A” side and “Christopher Columbus” on the “B” side. Robert Crumb was the band’s frontman and album cover artist. As of 2006 he was no longer much involved with the group; the band at that time included Robert Armstrong (vocals, musical saw, guitar), Bob Brozman (vocals, various resonator instruments, guitar, ukulele), Al (Allan) Dodge (vocals, mandolin), Terry Zwigoff (saw, cello, Stroh violin, and mandolin), and Tony Marcus (vocals, guitar, and fiddle).

Lyrics:

All the old paintings on the tombs,
They do the sand dance,
Don’t you know?

If they move too quick
They’re falling down like a domino.

All the bazaar men by the Nile,
They got the money on a bet.

Gold crocodiles they snap their teeth
On your cigarette.

Foreign types with their hookah pipes say
Walk like an Egyptian.

Her voice … it … gets me all warm and fuzzy. I can not get enough of it.

Nancy Sinatra – These Boots Are Made for Walkin’

weissebrauen
Published on Mar 27, 2010

“These Boots Are Made for Walkin'” is a pop song musically composed by Lee Hazlewood and first written and recorded by Nancy Sinatra. It was released in February 1966 and hit #1 in the United States and United Kingdom Pop charts. Subsequently, many cover versions of the song have been released in a range of styles: metal, pop, rock, punk rock, country, dance, and industrial.

You keep saying you got something for me
Something you call love but confess
You’ve been a’messin’ where you shouldn’t ‘ve been a’messin’
And now someone else is getting all your best
Well, these boots are made for walking, and that’s just what they’ll do
One of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you

You keep lyin’ when you oughta be truthin’
You keep losing when you oughta not bet
You keep samin’ when you oughta be a’changin’
What’s right is right but you ain’t been right yet
These boots are made for walking, and that’s just what they’ll do
One of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you

You keep playing where you shouldn’t be playing
And you keep thinking that you’ll never get burnt (HAH)
Well, I’ve just found me a brand new box of matches (YEAH)
And what he knows you ain’t had time to learn
These boots are made for walking, and that’s just what they’ll do
One of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you

[SPOKEN]

Are you ready, boots?
Start walkin’

Nancy is wonderful.

A good influence for a little boy, too, no?

I thought so.

Still do.

DUELING BANJOS ~ Guitar & Banjo Song ~ Deliverance

Z1DO4U
Published on Mar 30, 2014

The Dueling Banjos scene from the 1972 American thriller film “Deliverance” by John Boorman.

delicious. truly.

please note the Hollywood trickery, though… from that wiki place

Use in Deliverance

In Deliverance, a scene depicts Billy Redden playing it opposite Ronny Cox, who joins him on guitar. Redden plays “Lonnie,” a mentally challenged and inbred, but extremely gifted, banjo player. Redden could not actually play the banjo and the director thought his hand movements looked unconvincing. A local musician, Mike Addis, was brought in to depict the movement of the boy’s left hand. Addis hid behind Redden, with his left arm in Redden’s shirt sleeve. Careful camera angles kept Addis out of frame and completed the illusion, though anyone familiar with bluegrass banjo playing can see that the left-hand movements do not match up with the music produced, and that the banjo being used (an open-back instrument) could never produce the music one hears (clearly from a resonator banjo). The music itself was dubbed in from the recording made by Weissberg and Mandell and was not played by the actors themselves.[4] Two young musicians, Ron Brentano and Mike Russo, had originally been signed to play their adaptation for the film, but instead it was performed by Weissberg and Mandell.[5]

“Dueling Banjos” was arranged and performed for the film by Eric Weissberg and Steve Mandell, and was included on its soundtrack.[6] When Arthur “Boogie” Smith was not acknowledged as the composer by the filmmakers, he sued and eventually won, receiving songwriting credit as well as royalties.[7]

still yummy but I am very glad that the composer got paid!
