More music from the North Albany Archive of Recorded Sound… The Hoosier Hotshots were a virtuoso hokum band who rose to fame on Chicago’s WLS National Barn Dance. The bulk of their repertoire consisted of likable novelties like this one, but even their lightest fare was distinguished by their first rate musicianship. The unison playing of the clarinet and slide whistle here is quite good — Paul ‘Hezzie’ Trietsch’s intonation on the slide whistle is the best I’ve heard.
