Album Review

Shame On You is a budget-priced, introductory compilation of Western swing fiddler and bandleader Spade Cooley. Although purists and collectors will find this disc incomplete, it gives new listeners a chance to sample Cooley's OKeh/Columbia recordings from the mid-'40s to the early '50s, featuring "Steel Guitar Rag," "You Never Miss the Water (Till the Well Runs Dry)," and "Shame On You." Unfortunately, two of Cooley's biggest hits, "Detour" and "You Can't Break My Heart," are inexplicably absent.

If you like western fiddlin'...this one's for you!

After watching a Quebe Sisters concert and hearing them talk about Spade Cooley, I became fascinated! His music just sounds "vintage." You've also got to check out the story on Wikipedia...he was accused of murdering his wife, went to prison, they let him out to do a benefit concert for the Deputy Sheriff's Association of Alameda County, where he suffered a heart attack and died. Anyway, this is just fun old music. I'm so happy to have found it on iTunes. Since I'm not seeing any recommendations linked to this one, check out Asleep at the Wheel, Quebe Sisters, and Two Tons of Steel if you like this style...

Despite his impoverished background, Cooley was a classically trained fiddler,...
