ART RODGERS with the Texas Top hands

Another slightly blurred label shot from another unknown artist. I found an Art Rodgers on Seven Stars Label from Cincinnati, OH from 57, and it's possibly the same artist, but not 100% certain. The A side is a nice mid-tempo honky-tonk song. (Maybe it's my dodgy hearing and the bad condition of the disc) but he sounds to be about 30-40 years old). Flip side is mid tempo but more in the hillbilly vein. Nice fiddles and steel guitar. B side has some nice harmonies as well. (MC)

  1. This is THE Texas Top Hands.

    Art Rodgers had recorded before with them on Everstate (4 in 1950) and 4star (1 in 1952).
