Ten random things: April 30

Ten western and home folks records available by mail order from Stewart Sales Co. in 1948:

  1. Eddy Arnold - "I'll Hold You in My Heart"/"Don't Bother to Cry"
  2. Bob Wills - "A Sweet Kind of Love"/"Cowboy Stomp"
  3. Eddy Arnold - "Bouquet of Roses"/"Texarkana Baby"
  4. Pee Wee King - "Tennessee Waltz"/"Rootie Tootie"
  5. T. Texas Tyler - "Dad Gave My Dog Away"/"Beautiful Life"
  6. Clyde Moody - "Red Roses Tied in Blue"/"Caroline Waltz"
  7. Karl & Hardy - "Why Do Girls Wear Breeches"/"There's Nothing in the World a Man Won't Do"
  8. Wesley Tuttle - "Too Little Too Late"/"With Tears in My Eyes"
  9. Bing Crosby - "Be Honest With Me"/"Goodbye, Little Darlin', Goodbye"
  10. Grandpa Jones & Delmore Brothers - "Darby's Ram"/"Take It On Out the Door"

This is list is drawn from a 1948 magazine advertisement posted yesterday at the always fascinating Booksteve's Library. Apparently, western and home folks music—"hillbilly music," in the words of the guy in the ad—was all the rage back in the day. Making Bing Crosby a hillbilly, I guess. Who knew?
