Flamin' Mamie contains early cuts from the underappreciated Western swing bandleader Hank Penny recorded between 1938 and 1941. The 28 tracks combine traditional country music with swing-oriented jazz on such excellent standouts as "Steel Guitar Polka," "Off to Honolulu," "Black Eyed Susie," "You're So Different," and "Flamin' Mamie," with prominent nimble interplay from Sheldon Bennett on fiddle, Louis Dumont on banjo, and Sammy Forsmark on steel guitar throughout. This is a fine companion piece to Krazy Kat's 1999 Hank Penny compilation, Hollywood Western Swing 1944-1947. ~ Al Campbell
