The complete recorded works of Captain M.J. Bonner, Smith's Garage Fiddle Band, the Red Headed Fiddlers, and Solomon & Hughes. These are crude, exciting sounds, sometimes bordering on frantic as the players get lost in the music. Texas fiddlers are well known for "double-stopping" (which gives the impression of two fiddles), and you'll hear lots of it from all the artists compiled here. A marvelous document of Texas string-band music from the late '20s and early '30s. ~ Cub Koda
