"I read about this group in the book "Country Music, the Rough Guide," by Kurt Wolff (who I want to publicly thank for pointing me toward a number of great but little known artists).The Farmer Boys were contemporary with the Bakersfield scene in the 50s and 60s, and are sometimes classified as rockabilly, although only a few cuts meet that definition. In fact, they are really hard core hillbilly/country artists. On some cuts they sound a bit like the Louvin Brothers, but theirs is a rawer, older country sound. If you lean toward the honky side of honky tonk music, you should find this to be a delightful addition to your collection."
