Hello again folks. I have removed our Bob Dunn post from our library but for good reason. The long awaited, highly anticipated box set release of "Bob Dunn - Master Of The Electric Steal Guitar" is finally out. If you love western swing, (and you do) you need to get this.
Master of the Electric Steel Guitar. One of the most important figures in western swing history, Bob Dunn was the first country musician to use an amplified instrument on a phonograph record. He performed with Milton Brown's Musical Brownies from 1934 until 1936 but then left to begin a nomadic career with a variety of Southwest string bands. This 2-CD set contains 53 rare recordings featuring Dunn and also includes, for the first time, dozens of unpublished family photographs.
Features recordings by Milton Brown & his Musical Brownies, Roy Newman & his Boys, Cliff Bruner's Texas Wanderers, Buddy Jones, Leon Selph & his Blue Ridge Playboys, The Shelton Bros., Bob Dunn's Vagabonds, Floyd Tillman, Bill Boyd & his Cowboy Ramblers, Bill Mounce and Sons of the South, The Sons of Dixie, Modern Mountaineers, Tommy Dover and his Texas Rhythm Boys, Harry Choates and his Fiddle.
