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.


• Jack Turner recordings available here.
• Update on Les Randall acetate.
• Thanks to Bob more info on Bill Harris.

120% Heroes of Country CD3

Disc three. In my opinion, this isn't as strong as the previous two. But still some good tracks on it. Songs of note: Razzy Bailey's "9.999.999 Tears", Frankie Laine's "Blazing Saddles" (this was the theme for the Mel Brooks movie, the track was copied out of the original film!), Gene Autry's "Take Me Back Into Your Arms" (wonderful!), Roy Roger's "Saddle Serenade" and Don Gibson's "Blue Blue Day". The latter song introduced me first to Don Gibson, a wonderful tune, although it is the re-recording here. I love nearly all of Don's titles. Anyway, enjoy the music.
