West Virginia guitarist and singer Frank Hutchison was one of the great instrumental stylists of early country music. Perhaps best-known for his song ‘The Train that Carried my Girl from Town’, his recorded legacy consists of 32 tracks recorded for the Okeh label between 1926 and 1929. Like many other pioneering country artists, his recording career didn’t survive the depression and subsequent collapse of the record industry. Hutchison was a pioneering ‘white bluesman’, an excellent slide guitarist with a widely varied repertoire that included old-time country tunes, rags, and blues.
This track was recorded in St. Louis on April 29th, 1929, for the OKeh label. It was paired with Hutchison’s Worried Blues on OKeh 45114.
