The End Is Near

It is with great sadness that I have to announce the end of the Rocking-Byrd and Rocking--Byrd blogs.

The ever-dropping amount of visitors, downloads and comments leave me no choice, as I just can't go on putting so much time and energy for just a handful of people. I feel sorry for the regulars, but so be it.

Two more concerts will be uploaded, on Mondays December 20 and 27, 2010.

No new post in 2011.

The blogs will stay up until January 30, 2011, so hurry up if there's something you want to download.

If you come across dead or broken links, please let me know so I can re-upload the files and update the links (that is, until January 30, 2011).

The blogs will be taken down on February 1, 2011.

Many thanks to all those who have supported the blogs during all these years.

Kentucky Colonels - Ash Grove Mid-Sixties (Tut Taylor Reel Tapes Archives #29)


The Kentucky Colonels – Tut Taylor Reel Tapes Archives #29

Ash Grove, Santa Monica, CA (mid 60s)

Clarence White - guitar
Roland White - mandolin
Scotty Stoneman - fiddle
Billy Ray Lathum – banjo
Roger Bush - bass
Leroy Mack – dobro

With guests Tut Taylor and The Spencers

The Tut Taylor Archive Reel #29 features a Kentucky Colonels live performance that was probably recorded at the Ash Grove, Santa Monica, CA, circa mid-1960s. Tut's recording does a nice job of capturing Clarence White's fine backing guitar. A nice treat is to hear the masterful fiddling of "Eight Time National Champion Fiddler" Scotty Stoneman, who is announced as a guest at this show. Some dobro is heard in the background on tracks 9-10, and may be Tut. "The Spencers" (Dave and Lou), a popular California country act in the 1960s, sing two songs (tracks 12-13) backed by the Colonels. This recording is notable for featuring a number of tunes not found on other circulating Kentucky Colonels shows.

1. Wound Time Can't Erase (0:22)
2. Each Season Changes You (3:18)
3. From A Jack To A King (4:40)
4. Sometimes You Just Can't Win (2:23)
5. Six Days On The Road (2:50)
6. Orange Blossom Special (5:25)
7. Cumberland Gap (2:14)
8. Footprints In The Snow (3:10)
9. May You Never Be Alone Like Me (3:52) (with Tut Taylor)
10. Cry Cry Darling (3:22) (with Tut Taylor)
11. Rollin' In My Sweet Baby's Arms (2:20)
12. Please Be My Love (3:04) (with The Spencers)
13. I Dreamed My Baby Came Home (3:00) (with The Spencers)
