Roy King (2nd post)

This first song has a theme of Tennessee matrimony that makes it a candidate for a playlist I am assembling for an upcoming wedding in May. It's gonna be quite a hoedown.

I am happy to now have the capability to transfer 78rpm records. I've been getting lots of rare old C&W 78s from Vintage Music Company in Minneapolis. I volunteer sorting and organizing and get records at reduced prices. The owner Scott is also very knowledgeable.

Do you think the folks who owned this label were trying to out-do Marvin Rainwater's Brave label? How about a "The other guys are just losers, we're the bravest mother's of them all" label?

There were several record companies that went by the name of Trend, so who knows which one this is. I think there are also several artists named Bobby Martin, which doesn't help.

I've never posted orchestra/big band music before, but this label is special and close to home.
The place on University Avenue where North Star was located is now a parking lot. Sad.

Minnesota Rocked! pdf

No record today. Just this book which I tracked down in the Minneapolis Public Library reference section. I was able to scan it without garnering suspicion. Sorry the file is so large, but I didn't want to loose quality. I made the file searchable, although when I typed in Dylan nothing was found despite the existence of that name in the document. Guess it's not perfect. Notice the entry for Chuck Carson in this book is not as complete as the one I created, so this is not to taken as the final word. It's understandable because the book was last revised in 1996, before the internet we know today. I didn't even have an email then!

This song was featured on Dylan's Theme Time Radio Hour, episode 72-Birds. I found this one at the goodwill sandwiched in between a stack of broken 78s. .49 cents!

Dick Van Hale

Golden Wing 3005

Dick Van Hale was apparently the bass player for the house band at The Flame Cafe in Minneapolis. My friend Scott over at Vintage Music Company tells me the Flame probably operated until about 1977.

The Golden Wing label is explained well in this post
