Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys:
Steel Guitar Rag
(first recorded 1936)

Collecting Notes:

Can't quite remember where I picked this up, probably in Washington State somewhere . . . started picking up Bob Wills records after I first heard his St. Louis Blues, a wonderfully wacky hybrid sort of C&W and swing. This one really boogies along in a sort of rock'n'roll/swing/Hawaiian style, with bandleader Bob Wills (1905-1975) interjecting.
