Exciting New Album

Pat Jacobs Legendary Swing CD   
Album: Legendary Western Swing

Artist: Pat Jacobs and The Over the Hill Gang

Here is a very exciting new album of 15 tunes, recorded by Pat and so many of our favorite Western Swing super musicians from over the years. Pat is in the rhythm section on bass with Wayne Glasson playing piano and former Hank Thompson Brazos Valley Boy, Hugo Chambers behind the drums.

Elmer Laurence is the steel guitarist and former Bob Wills Texas Playboy, Walter Lyons plays both lead and rhythm guitar. Elmer is spotlighted on Boot Heel Drag from Bob Wills.

Former Asleep at the Wheel member Chris Booher is heard playing piano and fiddle. Also playing fiddle are former Texas Playboys George Uptmore and Billy McBay. George is heard on vocals on two from Bob Wills, I Laugh When I Think How I Cried Over You and Jesse Ashlock’s Still Water Runs the Deepest.

Billy does the vocal on Driving Nails in My Coffin from Jerry Irby, Floyd Tillman and Ernest Tubb. Bill Mitchell also plays guitar and a real treat is the great Dave Alexander playing trumpet. Dave is also heard in the vocal spotlight on Deacon Anderson and Johnnie Lee Wills’ Rag Mop and Stuart Hamblen’s My Mary.

Lynn Ryon does a super vocal job on both Hank Cochran’s Make the World Go Away, originally from Ray Price and the pop standard It Had to be You. Another fine vocalist, Dick Hammons, treats us to Soft Rain from his former boss Ray Price as well as Rex Griffin’s Won’t You Ride in My Little Red Wagon, from the Late Hank Penny and Harbor Lights from the Sammy Kaye big band.

P.J. Babcock also brings back vocals on two old pop standards. Dorothy Fields and Jimmy McHugh’s I Can’t Give You Anything But Love, also done by Bob Wills with his brother Johnie Lee on vocal in the mid 30s and the Gene Austin memory Pennies from Heaven. The final two tunes are the waltz favorite La Golondrina and Gershwin’s Lady Be Good.
