Loco Country Volume One
is the first release in LocoBop’s series of great country songs performed by great singers. There are many gems here, from the category of “The Best Songs You’ve Never Heard,” because they were unreleased – until now.

IVORY JOE HUNTER’s “It’s Too Late,” recorded a few years before his death in 1974, demonstrates his mastery as a story-telling singer and musician. BARRANCO, BARRETT & CROCKETT take us “Miles And Miles” down a country highway, followed by  PAPA DON McMINN revealing deep country influences with his self-penned offering of “Promises.” TERRY WALL picks it up with his kicking trucking rendition of “Goodbye, “Good Riddance.” BRENDA PATTERSON’s “I Wanna Be Your Baby, Baby” shows why she’s long been a solid favorite of Memphis music fans. Rodeo announcer COTTON YANCEY presents the rocking lament “I Shoulda Asked Her Faster.” FERN KINNEY  recorded “Dear Me” before Lorrie Morgan cut her version, which went to Number One. Songwriter GARY GENTRY  penned hits for Johnny Cash, Tim McGraw, Ray Charles, George Jones,  and John Anderson. Gary delivers here with “The World’s Three Greatest Lies.” THE ANDERSON BROTHERS were Shreveport, Louisiana natives. Stefan Anderson takes the lead on the haunting “Let Her Dream.” THE PITIFULS’ eponymous country rocker “The Pitifuls” will get you on your feet. Massachusetts native MARCIA MICHAELS rounds out the album with a compelling performance “Right At Home.”

Highlights: IT’S TOO LATE (Ivory Joe Hunter) MILES AND MILES (Barranco, Barrett & Crockett) and PROMISES (Papa Don McMinn).
