Album Review
Reviewed 2014-04-05
Jim & Jesse and the Virginia Boys / Radio Shows / Rural Rhythm Records. Old-timey Opry gold! Bluegrass, gospel, folk and country. This collection of songs was recorded during a radio broadcast at W.B.A.M. in Montgomery Alabama in 1962. The Virginia Boys are from Carfax Virginia, which if you don’t know, is a dot on the map in Southwestern Va. As a rural Va native I have to give these guys some love. It’s a gem; listen to this for a taste of old-timey jams. Similar Artists: Mac Wiseman, The Stoneman Family, Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs. Matthew.

NO FCC VIOLATIONS. Notable tracks: Play anything, 5, 6, 8, 11, 20, 23, 24
