Homer and the Barnstormers
« on: May 21, 2017, 11:03:35 AM »
I'm not a huge bluegrass music fan.  I like the instrumentation and the music, per se, but can't stand the nasty, nasal, screechy vocals.  I found a record in my stash that I really like.  It is on the Somerset label, which is a "B" label that was typically sold at the checkout stand of a grocery store or drug store.  I had never heard of this artist, although he was apparently famous enough to be on Discography:

This record, circa 1964 is stereo, and pretty good quality, both noise and fidelity.  I'm surprised that this group never got an RCA contract.  They are very enjoyable.  The link I posted also mentions Slim "88" Wilson, another Somerset artist that I have a record of.  He's pretty good, too. 
I'm great at multi-tasking.  I can listen, ignore, and forget all at the same time.
