I am conducting research about music and recording in Lubbock, Texas. The earliest known recording of Lubbock music I have found, which I have a copy of, is the following:
Lubbock Texas Quartet (Columbia)
Vocal Quartet: acc. Unknown, g. Friday, December 6, 1929
149554-1 Turn Away Co 15510-D
149555-2 O Mother How we Miss You Co 15510-D
Cited from: Russell, Tony, et al. Country Music Records: A Discography, 1921-1942. Oxford University Press US, 2004, 515.
Does anyone know where I can obtain more information about these recordings, or the Columbia country/gospel series from the 20s that these recordings were a part of?
