BPT Mixtape #9 - Jimmy's Waiting for a Train to Abilene

March 14, 2011 2:34 PM
Something about this winter has got me spinning a bunch of old country records. I grew up in a small town and my mom played a lot of classic country around the house while I was growing up so, I've always had a soft spot for classic, hillbilly sounds.

I've arranged these in chronological order, so that's why we're beginning with the great folk originators Jimmie Rodgers, The Carter Family, and Woody Guthrie. Dig the vintage footage of Jimmie and Woody!

Then the classic era of honky-tonk & rockabilly with Hank Sr., Loretta Lynn, Wanda Jackson, Ernest Tubb and George Hamilton IV. Then we go into the late 60's/early 70's sounds of Glen Campbell, Buck Owens, and Lee Hazelwood. I'll always imagine Glen Campbell coming out of an old AM transistor radio, I think he sounds best that way. And gotta dig those sideburns!

I finished with a current artist that has his feet firmly rooted in that classic 50's country sound, Wayne "The Train" Hancock. I highly recommend checking out one of his shows if he's in your town. I think last time I saw him he played for over 3 hours! Hope you guys enjoy the mix, I had a lot of fun putting it together.
