    Thanks, Frank. Love the ten-gallon hats. The Doughboys were an impressive bunch of musicians. I gather that was Bob Wills, the bandleader, on fiddle (see Wikipedia article).

    Robert Johnson's mother, describing blues musicians:
    "I never did have no trouble with him until he got big enough to be round with bigger boys and off from home. Then he used to follow all these harp blowers, mandoleen (sic) and guitar players."

    I don't think that was Bob Wills as he had been gone a while having started The Playboys in 1933 or early 1934 and the clip is from 1936 but a fabulous piece of film, for sure.

    Pappy OīDanielīs Light Crust Doughboys....

    Did you make the connection with "`O Brother Where Art Though"? Go check, thereīs some interesting stuff to be unearthed.

    But
    who
    is
    in
    the
    band?

    Because itīs post Pappy Selph and therefore his student Bob Wills.

    I wholeheartedly agree: What fun to listen to it.

    This is what (jazz) guitar should sound like (I have a different sound template for bluegrass, classical and ... guitar).

    Great dog house bass fiddle. I wish I could come close...

    Nice fiddle (have you seen the guy on the far right?).

    (In the voice of Porky Pig) Thatīs all for now folks

    ... or Adolph Hofner and his orchestra
    ... Emmet Miller ...
    ...

    That was fun. I am not sure Gene Autry's lariat work added much.

    Yeah, but if you'd been ambushed by a bunch of bad owlhoots, you'd be pretty thankful to see Gene Autry do his lariat tricks, followed by some guitar playing and singing at the campfire.

    Hopalong or Roy and Dale or Cisco and Pancho would not have tried to steal the show.
