The original country rockers? Well, no, not in the Eagles sense. But when you hear these songs, recorded between 1946 and 1952, what you're hearing is either the template for rockabilly or the missing link between rockabilly and western swing--in other words, one of the earliest documented instances of white boys really getting down to the heart of hep. Unofficial Delmore Brother Wayne Raney's harmonica work on songs like "Trouble Ain't Nothin' But the Blues" owes very little to country, while a Delmore original like "Used Car Blues" points to Chuck Berry and the future. Revelatory stuff, and very exciting.
