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.

Country Gold Vol 17 - Part Two

Here comes the second disc with other greats. Note that the back cover lists a duet of Ed Bruce and Lynn Anderson on "If It Was Easy", but there's no duet - Bruce is singing solo. The singer on Waylon Jennings' "Lorena" is Jerry Gropp, the guitarist of Jennings' back-up band at that time, the Waylors. The track was featured on their first album "Waylon Jennings at JD's" from 1964. Other notable songs on this disc are Jimmy Dean's live version of the Merle Travis associated song "Nine Pound Hammer", Johnny Cash's cover of the old Hank Williams tune "I Could Never Be Ashamed of You", Bill Monroe's "Shady Grove", Merle Haggard with the rock'n'roll styled "If You Want to Be My Woman" (would like to know the recording date!) and finally Burl Ives with "Roll Up Some Inspiration". Have fun with this!
