Montana, Patsy / Coon Creek Girls / Blue Ridge Mountain Singers - Banjo Pickin' Girl Banjo Pickin' Girl
Country New - LP 1029 Rounder
Sealed 80's Compilation. β€œAn Inappropriate Album Title Weakens An Otherwise Quite Interesting Collection Of Material By Early Female Country Performers. It's The "Banjo" In The Title, Accompanying A Shot Of An Elderly Woman Playing An Old-Time Banjo, That Would Obviously Lead Listeners To Conclude That There Is Lots Of Banjo Playing On This Record. This Is Hardly The Case. Most Of The Women Actually Accompany Themselves On Guitar, Even Louisiana Lou When She Dishonestly Sings "With My Banjo On My Knee Blues." Furthermore, Some Of The Recordings Are So Decrepit And Fuzzy That One Can't Even Tell A Banjo Is Being Played, Which Is The Case With The Opening Track Entitled "Big Eyed Rabbit," A Good Subject For A Banjo Tune If There Ever Was One. The Program Finally Finds Its Way To Heavy Banjo Territory, But Not Until Close To The End Of The Second Side. This Is Where One Finds Lily May Ledford, One Of The Great Banjo Players, On Several Tracks Recorded With Her Band, The Lovable Coon Creek Girls. A Booklet Enclosed Inside Is Full Of Interesting Information, But Could Have Used A Staple To Hold It Together. Fans Of Vintage Recordings Of Folk, Western, And Cowboy Songs Will Enjoy This Collection, Except For Those That Have Trouble With Political Incorrectness. The Track "All Night Long" By Roba Stanley, For Example, Contains Lyrics About How Bad Black People Supposedly Smell. A Nice Job Has Been Done Remastering Some Of These Recordings, Bringing Out All The Lovely Tones Of The Blue Ridge Mountain Singers' Harmony Singing, For Example. There Are Several Nice, Quite Early Tracks By Cowboy Lass Patsy Montana Backed By The Wonderful Prairie Ramblers, Cut When She Was Still Working Under Her Real Name, Rubye Blevins.” – Eugene Chadbourne, All Music Guide... more details
