Having been an Old-TIme fan and player since the 60's, I can't say that I have favorite songs and musicians. Sometimes I find a great song played by someone that I can't stand, and some of my favorite musicians did some really bad songs. But my favorite musicians, the oncs that have imfluenced my playing are: Grandpa Jones, Stringbean, The Blue Sky Boys, Wilf Carter, The Crook Brothers, Dr. Humphrey Bates, Hobart Smith, Lee Moore, The Carter Family, Ernest Stoneman, Cliff Carlisle, ALfred Karnes. And lots more.

Gargoyle,

Nice Jimmie Rodgers' list: the first two songs he performed were: "Won't You Come Home Bill Bailey" and "Steamboat Bill." He won first prize in a contest singing them when he was 12.

"Froggie" should have been under Bradley Kincaid, The Kentucky Mountain Boy- Sorry.

I honestly haven't heard all of Rodgers' songs- have you?

Anyway thanks for the imput everyone. There are so many band to consider, it's a bit mind bogling.

Richie

Yes...I have the entire collection....even outtakes and You Tubes.

I became more "environmental" than collections of butterflys when the butterflys grew scarce.

I even have some songs his father sang

Go to the Library of Congress archive....I beleive you may pick up an entire set there.

Sincerely,
Gargoyle

Your thread is sincerely lacking - the Carter Family should have 40 or more - EVERY Southern State (USA) has a candidate they want permatized in cement. Red is out their someone towards the sunset.
