...Trying to connect with Gene Baylos, just from memory, not searching him on the webs. Drawing a bit of a blank. A Herb Edelman he's not.

doesn't matter how many ways big mama thornton remade 'hound dog', every last one of them kills me.

Lonnie Wright is from Great Bend, Kansas. He cut the record when he was in Texas doing training for WW2 . He put it out funded with his bunk mate ! It was recorded at the base radio studio with troop members as backing (Free form refers to recording off the cuff, which is the name they put on the label) . Lonnie celebrated his 94th birthday in 2014. I lost track of him around then .
  Sat. 2/20/16 2:01pm Googie:

REX ! You know who played guitar on that Earl cut ! RENE HALL !!!

Googie: any chance it was buddy guy?
  Sat. 2/20/16 2:15pm Googie:

No chance , Santos . The session sheets have Rene in black & white .
  Sat. 2/20/16 2:16pm Santos L Halper:

googie: do you actually have that on CD/liner notes, or did you find that info online?
  Sat. 2/20/16 2:25pm Googie:

Santos, the UCLA archive has tons of session sheets from the 30s-60s . It's a hoot to dig around in !
  Sat. 2/20/16 2:27pm Listener Don:

Super good show Rex, thank you!
  Sat. 2/20/16 2:44pm davefromtoronto:

how bout a set of "no brow" tunes?
  Sat. 2/20/16 2:44pm Googie:

Santos, the sheets are not online. I have them on a drive. The public digital archive is a very small part of the collection at UCLA. You will need a uni card to dig on location. Have fun !

Great show today - much appreciated!
