The Delta Sisters- Music From The Old Timey Hotel



I bought this lp a few weeks ago just because i loved the sleeve and the title and was not disappointed by the music also. In fact it's a great record, issued in 1981 on Rooster Records, from a duo of two girls who sing in harmony and play guitar and fiddle some very fine cajun, old-time country, Delmore Brothers numbers. They are accompanied by friends from the west-coast old-timey/folk/bluegrass community and among them, surprise, some of my all-time favorite musicians, Jody Stecher and Eric and Suzy Thompson who provide their vocals and instrumentals excellence on some tracks.
Enjoy!

yes, we are kindred spirits gadaya. you know, i've found that the other people who share a very similar musical taste also have a similar outlook on life. it's more than just 'taste' i think, it's a part of a whole worldview. blessings on your path brother!

ps. yes, i have a guitar and a banjo i'm learning how to play

Re-renewed my interest in the Delmore Brothers. And a fine example of cajun-styled harmonica playing on Le Blues Mes Preund. Thanks.

Off topic, I love your blog as a whoel and am regularly checking back to see if you have uploaded any "new" treasures.
