Jenks "Tex" Carman - Chippeha! The Essential Dixie Cowboy (1947-1957) (Revenant, 1998)...
Tex Carman was a walking anachronism, following his own rhythm, recording records for 4 Star and Capitol and delighting many with his television appearances and the sheer exuberance he brought to everything he touched. Until recently, he had been more or less forgotten. Yet, thanks to John Fahey's Revenant Records label and its devotion to putting out raw music by everyone from Harmonica Frank Floyd to Cecil Taylor, Tex is back with us - Flagpole
