Thread: Oklahoma Music

  1. #1

    Default Oklahoma Music

    My Grandmother had a 78 record that I now have and it has a chuck missing off the edge. It's titled (Got to get to) Oklahoma City. It is on the RCA Victor label 20-2414_a (Don Reed-Dan Franklin) Luke Wills' Rhythm Busters with vocal refrain. If I remember correctly it went something like this. "I gotta gal in Oklahoma City she ain't to bright, but she's awfully pretty. I hope it ain't to late already hope my gal ain't goin steady gotta get to OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOklahoma City
    I picked up another 78 at a local thrift store. It's called Oklahoma City it's on the Columbia label 37204 (CCO 4634) Vocal by Paul Howard with string band acc. Fred Rose, Paul Howard and his Cotton Pickers. I don't have a turntable to listen to the 2nd record and have no idea what is sounds like.

    Besides R & H musical OKLAHOMA and the 80's song by Frizzel and West You're the reason God make Oklahoma YouTube - D. Frizzell & S. West - You're The Reason God Made Oklahoma can anyone think of any other Oklahoma or Oklahoma city music?

    Ha, if I'm 77, then I look REALLY good for my age.

    Actually, 1977 was the year I was born, making me 32.

    I grew up in Enid, and moved to OKC in 1995 to go to Oklahoma Christian University. I've been in the metro ever since. Most of these threads go back before my time here, so I haven't chimed in much, but this one caught my attention.

    Cherokee Maiden is an old standard from the 40's. Jazz players consider it
    one of the best ways to learn to get around on your instrument. Bebop great
    Charlie Parker studied it in all 12 keys, after getting laughed off the stage at
    a jam session.

    "Oklahoma Hills" was written by Woody Guthrie and first recorded by his brother Jack Guthrie. Gene Autry may also have recorded it but the most popular was done by Hank Thompson. At least the Hank Thompson was the one I remember played in the juke joints.

    I think I would have really liked the song above. On my computer I heard less vocal and more instruments. Maybe that is how my settings are on the comptuer

    When I was a rocker in Tulsa, our band house was just a few blocks from
    Leon's house with the famous basement studio. Of course, we were one the
    poor side of S. Peoria.
