CIVIL WAR BANJO by Bob Flesher. This is a collection of 22 minstrel songs that were undoubtedly played during the war by the troops. Played on two original banjos of the 1850's and 1862, these songs are taken from banjo instructor books of the day, and are typical of what banjoists of that period played. Along with the banjo is fiddle, bones, and tambourine. We have tried to achieve the exact sound you would have heard had you been in one of these minstrel shows that were so popular in the army. The liner notes are loaded with history.

THE BANJO OF THE COWBOYS Since the old cowboys actually played banjo instead of guitar, Bob Flesher and the Spanish Rose playing clawhammer banjo and bass fiddle bring back the cowboy spirit together with the drama of the "Old West" in songs such as Texas Rangers, Get Along Little Dogies, The Rangers's Command, The Trail to Mexico, and The Disheartened Ranger. They also present many of Bob's original compositions, like Cactus Jack, Get Along Old Paint Hoss, The Banjo Hangs Silent on The Door, and The Poor Cowboy Gets Reckless. Mix in a few instrumentals with Bob's championship form on the banjo like Spanish Fandango, Hangman's Reel, Leather Britches and Sandy Boy. Round it out with some humor as in You Ain't Talkin' to Me, Whoa Mule Whoa, and The Cowboy Chiken Banjo Picker and you have an album you will surely enjoy. Includes 20 tracks. Bob features his authentic 1850's and 1890's banjos on all the songs.
