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.

I'm sorry for not posting anything this week! No time, no time... Here we go with disc 5, not a bad one I think. We have Buck Owens with his 1956 ultra rockin' rockabilly record "Rhythm and Booze", flip of "Hot Dog" (not featured here). I think the version on this CD is speeded up a little bit - the track on the Redita LP "Nashville Country Rock" was slower. However, there are other gems, like Bill Monroe's 1954 version of "Blue Moon of Kentucky", Dave Dudley's re-recording of his 1963 single "Cowboy Boots" and another goodie by Buck Owens, "Excuse Me". The Dave Dudley tune was originally recorded in 1963 on Dudley's own Golden Wing label as a follow-up to "Six Days on the Road". I think the original version made it into the Top-Five Country charts, resting on #3. Enjoy!
