Homer and the Barnstormers – Bluegrass Banjos on Fire

Here’s another one of those mysterious albums that has long since been lost on vinyl. Mysterious I say, because other than the fact that it was released on the Somerset label (SF-195) in 1963, very little is known about it – including who Homer and the Barnstormers were. There is plenty of speculation out there (this album is in collections all over the world), but there are no definitive answers out there. If you find any, let me know. In the meantime, enjoy the pickin’s!

Track Listing:

  1. Ballad of Jed Clampett
  2. Fire on the Mountain
  3. Stay all Night
  4. Arkansas Traveler
  5. Careless Love
  6. Granfather’s Clock
  7. Cumberland Gap
  8. Goin’ up Cripple Creek
  9. Ole’ Joe Clark
  10. Camptown Races
  11. Ole’ Dan Tucker
  12. Blue Grass Blossoms

    This is a really great album. Can you add the ‘Ballad of Jed Clampett’ to the MP3 download?
