Bruce from Seattle was very kind to lend me his copy of Vernon Dalhart: First Star of Country Music. I am in the middle of it and find it to be a very good read, with an extensive discography which takes up almost half the book. Dalhart certainly was a hard worker in the studio.
Here are 2 records, one on the Herschel Gold Seal label. This label used masters from the Gennett record company, issuing 21 records in 1926-1927. Two of those 21 were of Dalhart.
I'll never be able to hear the song Golden Slippers without picturing grandpa Walton dancing around with Ester at their anniversary party.
Will someone please tell me why Bear Family chooses to release everything Jimmy Skinner ever did, while ignoring Dalhart? Jeez.
