>The Delta Sisters- Music From The Old Timey Hotel


I bought this lp a few weeks ago just because i loved the sleeve and the title and was not disappointed by the music also. In fact it’s a great record, issued in 1981 on Rooster Records, from a duo of two girls who sing in harmony and play guitar and fiddle some very fine cajun, old-time country, Delmore Brothers numbers. They are accompanied by friends from the west-coast old-timey/folk/bluegrass community and among them, surprise, some of my all-time favorite musicians, Jody Stecher and Eric and Suzy Thompson who provide their vocals and instrumentals excellence on some tracks.
