Steel guitar wizard

exkopite

This is a wonderful collection. Fans of Jimmie Rodgers will immediately recognise where Carlise got his inspiration from. Some of his performances however are dare I say it superior to the father of country music. His steel guitar playing is of a high quality. And if we overlook the misogynistic strains some of the song are of high quality. 4 albums might be a bit too much for the unitiated download "Wild Cat Woman" "When the Evening Sun Goes Down" "That Nasty Swing" and "On the Banks Of The Rio Grande" and if you are not tempted to go for more by then you probably never will be. For me Cliff Carlisle is one of the greats of old time country music

They Say All Music Guide

These recordings show Cliff Carlisle to be more or less a contemporary of the great Jimmie Rodgers, albeit a far more obscure one. There are definite comparisons musically, however: Carlisle also used the yodel as part of his vocal repertoire, as well as bringing in lap steel — more often than Rodgers, on the evidence presented, and playing it himself (a custom-built National Resophonic, for those who like exactitude). With 83 tracks recorded over a period of nine years, Carlisle was certainly prolific, and you have to wonder why he wasn’t better known — the man could certainly play and sing, even if some of the material wasn’t always up to scratch. However, it’s a set that reveals its joys, however mad they can be (listen to the falsetto chorus on “Shanghai Rooster Blues,” for example). Like many country artists from this formative period, his music and lyrics easily straddle the amorphous border between country and blues, with Hawaiian touches coming in quite often (not surprising, given the fad for Hawaiian music at the time). It’s an insight into one of country music lesser-known pioneers — and one who deserves more credit. – Chris Nickson
