 This new 2 CD, 50 track set from Real Gone Music offers folks a chance to own some of the most revered - and rare - recordings in the history of American music. In 1946 and 1947, Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys cut nearly 400 full songs for Tiffany Music, Inc., recordings that came to be known as the Tiffany Transcriptions. These recordings were distributed only to radio stations on 16inch transcription discs, and were intended for airplay as part of a syndicated radio show featuring Wills and the Playboys. However, the transcriptions proved to be a financial failure, and Tiffany Music, Inc. Folded by the end of the '40s, seemingly relegating the Tiffany Transcriptions to obscurity (and leaving over 200 songs in the can). Flash forward 60 years. One day, Warner/Rhino tape vault honcho Mike Johnson spies the master tape reels for the Kaleidoscope Records releases on the shelf - but what's on those 49 other tape reels right next to them?! That's right - only the biggest discovery in American popular music this millennium, all the missing recordings Wills and his band made for Tiffany, both released and unreleased. Now, Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys: RIDING YOUR WAY - THE LOST TRANSCRIPTIONS FOR TIFFANY MUSIC, 1946-1947 presents 50 of those long lost transcription sides - 20 of them never released even on transcription disc - inside a package worthy of the material, a 6panel DVD style digipak featuring photos and memorabilia from the collection of Kaleidoscope Records cofounder Tom Diamant. The 20 page, DVD sized booklet includes notes by Western Swing expert Cary Ginell featuring quotes from the original Playboys, plus a foreword from Johnson (who coproduced the set) and a complete discography of the Tiffany recordings. The recordings are mastered by Bob Fisher from the recently discovered tapes to preserve their vintage sonic vibrancy while eliminating excess background surface noise.
