Tony Hollins' second guitar player?
« on: April 01, 2012, 05:41:45 AM »
On Hollins' 1950s recordings there's a second guitarist that sounds dead slick - any guesses as to who it might be?

...also is the document label's 11 releases the full output by Hollins, cause I can't find a discography?

The Document disc has the complete existing recordings by Hollins.  Workhouse Blues was recorded by Okeh on June 3, 1941, but was unissued and no master or acetate has turned up.

Perhaps it should be noted that Cross Cut Saw only saw release relatively recently in 1990 on the Columbia Roots & Blues series which then appeared on that Document CD in 1994.

Memory is a funny and unreliable thing.  An hour ago I would have sworn that Cross Cut Saw was on one of the old Blues classics "Country Blues Classics" LPs.  But I see from Stephan's Blues Classics discography that Stamp Blues was the only Hollins song on there.

Tell me about it. Mine gets worse as each year passes.

Don't worry - it's probably less to do with age than reliance on technological conveniences (that's how I justify my absentmindedness)
