Product Notes

'In the 1940s Rhythm 'n' Blues recordings the double entendre was left to the listener to decipher, in these 1930s hillbilly songs the meaning was very clear!'Bear Family Records enter into an erotic forum with a boisterous and rowdy 28 song disc 'She's Selling What She Used To Give Away', the disc is housed in a gatefold sleeve and the music is vibrant and clear. This CD should be accompanied with a puritanical warning, 'These songs containing language, about drinking, sexual contact, whore houses, and the liberal application of Vaseline to an area of the body'. The musicians featured on this album are hillbillies who were steeped in both the blues and western music, and their tongue was not in cheek as they intonation smutty songs full of the ecstasies of self-indulgence, fornicating, drink and narcotics. The music was performed in places of ill repute, or Whore Houses if you prefer, where songs about fornication were joyously received and were sold to customers, although under the counter! Many of the songs would become part of 1950s rockers repertoire albeit with cleaned up lyrics. To country folk Roy Acuff had a 'milk and honey' reputation, however his skills with the pen reveal his 'Guinness' side, When Lulu's Gone was released under the group name Bang Boys, and what can we say lady mention in the song? Well she likes to entertain and more than one man for certain. The three songs from Hartman's Heartbreakers are the crème de la crème of smuttiness, the combo had an alluring chanteuse, Betty Lou deMorrow, her warbling would raise the eyebrows of any man! This enchantingly and titillating song thrush chants lust-filled pleas while the band members tease her with equally lust filled responses and catcalls. During Feels So Good, her man gives her enough fun with no strings, No Huggin' Or Kissin', it's clear she is not following mamas rules. (... ) Mark Armstrongread more on www. Bear-family. #com
