Wanderer’s Swing: Texas Dance Hall Music [coll] – [Krazy Kat]

humana   12/4/2013   CD, Country

Reading the impressive liner notes for each of these songs is a must! The lowdown is that these 25 songs were recorded in the 40s and 50s primarily in Texas dancehalls, which were the sites of entertainment and music post-WWII and pre-TV and other distractions. Some dancehalls still feature this Western Swing, which is upbeat and downhome fun, mixed with polkas, rags, two-steps, and other types of folk music. The lyrics are entertaining, and you need only look to the titles for some inspiration.
