Two related questions:
First, I've just acquired an LP by the great Texas fiddler Benny
Thomasson, entitled "Benny Thomasson Volume Two" on the John's label
(BT-48015A), copyright 1980, "recorded at Gillian Studio, Chandler,
Oklahoma." I can't find anything about this record -- I knew Benny
Thomasson, and I work closely with Voyager Records in Seattle, who
issued several other BT records, but I'd like to know more about this
one. Anybody know this label? Any other information? Has anybody ever
seen Volume One?
And second, a more general question about fiddle records. Is there
any kind of comprehensive discography of old-time fiddle recordings?
It seems like many of them were vanity issues, on tiny labels, issued
by local fiddlers' groups or contests, or otherwise out of mainstream
distribution. Has anybody assembled a list of these things?
