The 70 tracks in this post constitute the entire remaining recorded output of Lee and Austin, the Allen Brothers. Known as the "Chattanooga Boys" the brothers were known and continue to be revered for their bluesy sound and "salty" material. These sides are unique in their use of Kazoo as a lead instrument. The brothers made records from 1927 to 1934 at which point they gave up music and pursued other careers.
