Walter Brown & Son Floyd

Walter Brown & Son Floyd
Melody Records E.P. 115
RITE pressing 21611/21612
Hamilton, Ohio 1968
Magic Valley / The Infidel's Daughter / Heaven Will Surely Be Worth It All / There's A Light Guiding Me

The Melody label from Hamilton, Ohio was owned and operated by William Jones, who also owned the Pine Tree, and Sunrise labels as well. Many fantastic hillbilly, gospel, bluegrass, and primitive country releases can be heard on these prolific labels. For my money the Walter Brown & Son Floyd E.P. is easily the best of the bunch. Something about his voice, the guitar and the primitive sound on this platter just kill me. Another late 60's recording from the Ohio Valley that sounds like early 50's "Anywere Else, U.S.A.".

    Thanks for your postings!
