Nashville Organ

Don't know what made this one pop into my head, but I was thinking about it earlier and decided to reshare it this evening.  Owen Bradley was one of the architects of the Nashville sound of the sixties, alongside Chet Atkins and a few others.  Hundreds of records and thousands of songs saw his name listed as producer, and many of them had an identifiable sound that made them hits.  Unfortunately, none of that sound can be found on this record.  I guess he hadn't found the magic yet in 1956.  Too bad.  Anyhow, this one is worth having if for nothing else than the name Owen Bradley on it.  If you've missed it every year here since 2008, please don't miss Owen Bradley-Organ And Chimes Played By Owen Bradley (Coral CRL 57071, Mono, 1956).
