We Stock and Ship for The Jimmy Driftwood Legacy Project

JIMMY DRIFTWOOD'S GREAT AMERICAN SONGS CD. 19 Jimmy Driftwood songs performed by Britain's country music legend, Bryan Chalker, and Arkansas' longtime folksinger, Dan "The Tire Man" Merry III.
____Bryan Chalker first recorded Driftwood songs in 1968 with his New Frontier band. They also traveled with Jimmy when he toured England in 1979. Their old-time country style will delight the listener and Chalker's deep resonant voice will recall Tex Ritter and Johnny Cash. Chalker songs, with New Frontier and Legacy, are Four Little Girls in Boston, Slack Your Rope Hangman, I'm
Leaving on the Wagon Train, (On the Road to) Chalamette (British version of The Battle of New Orleans), Soldier's Joy (New Frontier instrumental), The Widders of Bowling Green, When I Swim the Golden River, Sailor Man and Oh, Florie.
____Dan Merry first met Jimmy Driftwood in Mountain View, Arkansas in 1969 and they were friends until Jimmy's passing in 1998. His vocal and musical style is in the tradition of Woody Guthrie and Ramblin' Jack Elliott of the "folk revival" or "hippie" era of folk music in America. Merry songs are Tennessee Stud, The Wilderness Road, Mooshatanio, Song of Creation, The Battle of New Orleans, The Baby-O, I'm Too Young to Marry, He Had A Long Chain On, Big John Davy and Along the Road of Time, an introspective, personal poem by Jimmy that Merry set to music and sings.
____Album insert includes photos of Driftwood, Chalker and Merry.

CD Only $12.00
