Subject: Brumley Songbooks
From: Joe Offer
Date: 12 Apr 97 - 07:28 PM

A few weeks back, somebody posted a message about songbooks available from Albert E. Brumley & Sons. The books sounded pretty good, so I blew forty bucks and bought every book available from the company. They'll take credit card orders at (800)435-3725. Their address is different from what was previously posted. It's Albert E. Brumley & Sons, Inc., 100 E. Albert E. Brumley Parkway, Powell, Missouri 65730. Postage is four bucks, whatever the size of your order.

The little songbooks, about 50 songs each, are $3.00, or $20 for the set of 8. There are three "Songs of the Pioneers" booklets in the set, one called "Lamplitin' Songs & Ballads," another called "America's Memory Valley." These books are a wonderful collection of corny old songs that are just plain fun to sing, from "I Ride an Old Paint" to "You've Been a Good Wagon But You done Broke Down." The other three are mostly gospel (Brumley wrote "I'll Fly Away" and "Turn Your Radio On").

The other books are "Great Inspirational Songs" and "Christian Hymnsongs" ($4.50 each); and "Radio Favorites" and "The Best of Albert E. Brumley" ($3.00, such a deal). You'll find the most popular hymns in the little booklets, so it might not be worth your while to get these others. I suppose it's sacrilegious to say so, but I find these songs go especially well with a six-pack.

Thanks to whoever suggested these books. They're great!

Hey Joe, nothing sacrilegious about a six pack. I've got several friends for whom it is a religion !!! Besides what goes better with bluegrass or good old timey gospel?

Well, we sang "I'll Fly Away" and "Turn Your Radio On" in church this morning in honor of old Al Brumley. It's not too often you'll hear songs like that in a Catholic church. It was fun to do them for a change. Gospel is a lot more fun than the typical music you'll hear in mainstream churches. The theology of that Gospel stuff is another matter. I try to ignore it. There's no Gospel song more fun than "There Is Power in the Blood." That one is in the Brumley songbooks, too. -Joe-

Just wondering if anyone knows about this guy. He wrote a bunch of old timey songs like I'll Fly Away and Rank Stranger. Anyone know where to find any of his music or any info. Please email me at stumd3@aol.com. Thanks.

Brumley has been discussed a number of times in threads, and it seems that what he "wrote" is all mixed together, in his copyrighted songbooks, with what others created and he arranged.

I have the "Songs of the Pioneers" series and except that the print is so small, they're great. Good items to stash in the instrument case, and simple, playable arangements.

You'd enjoy the Albert Brumley Songbook Susan. It's "down home" as all get out, complete with recipies for those "All day Singin' and dinner on the ground" get-togethers. My fave? Parson Blaney's "smothered biscuits" (although I'd substitute onion powder for real onions in the "smotherins")

Went to an All-day Gospel sing at Toronto's Massey Hall years ago (yeah, yeah, I may be a non-believer, but I LUV the music) and the only available food was MacDonald's crapola hamburgers and fries....yuchhh......gimme that Southern cookin' anyday.

One of my favourite albums is a live Buck Owens concert from the seventies. Is Tom Brumley, his steel guitar player related to Albert?

Subject: Who was Arthur E. Brumley, Sr?
From: GUEST,Fortunato -- That ain't hominey grits.

Apparently someone named Arthur E. Brumley, wrote "I'll Fly Away" and other early country gospel standards. I see references to him but nothing substantial. What can you folks tell me about him? As you may know I try to get to close to original soures when learning a song.
I'm interested in his bio; earliest performances/recordings of his songs, etc. Thanks in advance. Regards, Fortunato

He's Junior's dad, of course.

Be aware that Things Brumley may not truly be so, and that there are mixed reactions to the gang. He did leave us a lot of good things to find, though, even if he did take credit for things others slipped into the traditional music stream ahead of him.

I have several of the songbooks if you find you have a craving for an item and don't want to lay out bucks to see one right off.

I haven't had much luck with that Brumley Music link today but I think it is still viable-- maybe try tomorrow?

They also sponsor an annual Gospel Sing festival in early August. Boy do I wanna go to that!

I believe Albert Brumley Jr. is going to be in Mountain View Arkansas the weekend of Easter or???? the weekend after.
Somewhere called Ozark Folk Center.
I hear its a wonderful place to go for music and nice folks.
Ooooh..its a long drive from Wisconsin...
but would be worth every mile.
