AL MEYER and his Pals

DIAMOND RECORDS 515
81 South 6th Street, St Genevieve, MO

Zero info on Al Meyer apart from what’s listed on the label shot. Primitively recorded hillbilly disc with guitar, steel guitar and fiddle. If the label didn’t say MO, I would have sourced this disc a lot further south, perhaps Mississippi or Alabama. Vocally, it reminds me a little of Lloyd McCullough on Von Records. (Lloyd has his own custom on Starday 686). (MC).

AL MEYER and his Pals were a band out of South- east Missouri and Illinois. They were featured on radio station KSGM's Ozark Opera on Saturdays from 11:15am to noon. 

Any info? Email me!
