Welcome to Mellow's Log Cabin. This blog's purpose is to supply information on a diversity of American southern music - ranging from country, blues, old-time and folk to R&B, rock'n'roll and rockabilly. I regularly present my research results about artists, labels, shows and also give guest writers a chance to publish their texts here on occasion.

This photo is of Reece Shipley and the Rainboy Valley Boys, not Lc Smith band. Reece Shipley is top left, and my father Tex Spangler is at steel guitar. I have this exact photo in my personal collection. Both Rainbow Valley Boys and the L C Smith band were from Kingsport, Tn. Reece Shipley and band performed "Milk Bucket Boogie" among other recordings.

Patsy, I'm from Kingsport and trying to put together info on our musical heritage. Who were the other two members of the Rainbow Valley Boys? Do you have a picture of L.C. Smith and his band? I'd love to see your pictures and talk to you about this music.
