Album Review

Singer and steel guitarist Casey Bill Weldon may be obscure today, but he recorded enough material in a three-year period to fill up three CDs. Vol. 2 has five unissued performances (four of which are alternate takes) among the 25 performances. Various selections have Weldon joined by pianist Black Bob, Tampa Red or Big Bill Broonzy on guitars, Charlie McCoy on mandolin, and clarinetist Arnett Nelson. Weldon is best remembered for his composition "We Gonna Move to the Outskirts of Town," and the original version of that future standard is a highlight of this disc, along with such numbers as "I'se Just a Bad Luck Man," "Streamline Woman," "I Believe I'll Make a Change," and the good-time "Oh, Red."
