CARL TANNER and IVENA BUCKINS and the Southern Pine Boys
Jun 56 (BMI clearance on 20th July 56)
45-568-A - Together You And Me
(Tanner) (Starrite BMI)
45-568-B - We're In Love
(Tanner / Buckins) (Starrite BMI)

A second offering from Carl, this time supported by one Ivena Buckins. A side is a slow hillbilly disc with sawing fiddles and Carl & Ivena take turns in singing portions of the song. Ivena's voice is a little flat here and there - (in fact, Carl struggles a little too - almost like the key is slightly too low for him to sing in.). The flip side is taken at a breath-taking tempo, with both singers sound much more comfortable with the song. The band cook up a storm throughout this side. (MC)

  1. She sounds a little like Kitty Wells to my ears.
