BLUE SKY BOYS Starday Recordings

Wednesday, November 19, 2008

Just wanted to thank everybody for all the support so far, I really appreciate all the great comments. Thanks as well to all who have linked and posted messages in promotion of the new blog. It makes it feel like the time spent transferring is "worth it".
Here we have the two LPs Bill and Earl Bolick, the Blue Sky Boys recorded new for Starday in the early '60's. Starday had released some old recordings (this album will be featured soon) by the duo and response had been so great the Bolicks were prevailed upon to make new recordings for the label. These two albums, the first one secular, the second gospel, were the result. The gospel album is straight up Blue Sky fare and "Why Should You Be Troubled And Sad" is beautifully haunting, while tracks like "Why Not Confess" are surprises, definately the closest the boys ever got to honky-tonk.

Your Mediafire link doesn't work, alas... it just churns and churns, but never offers up the download link... tried it 3x on a broadband connection!
Looks like some prime stuff there...

The link seems to work when I try it... Are the other mediafire links working for you? Let me know, we'll see what we can do.

It's a problem I have with all Mediafire links... I also can't create an account on Mediafire.
I use a Mac, and I've never had problems with Mediafire 'til the 20th. I've tried files on three other blogs, all Mediafire... nothing... just churn, churn, goes for over an hour if I let it. Most peculiar!
