Oct 4, Hillbilly bop artists 6 comments. She sings about parties, fancy clothes, women dreams and wanted to enjoy life. Move away, skinny dog! The family moved soon for Paris, TX, where she grew up with a conservative background. Her father was a Pentecostal preacher and her mother was a devout churchgoer. Both played music and soon Charline will pick up soft drink bottles off the roadside in order to buy her first guitar.
Her first musical inspiration came from Ernest Tubb, the Texas Troubadour. She just wanted to sing like him on that bouncing Honky-tonk style and to blend it with some Boogie Woogie feel. At fifteen, she was singing locally on KPLT radio and soon joined a travelling medicine show. Touring with that show, she will meet and marry Jack Arthur, a dog house bass player, in April 17, By then, she can play guitar and fiddle.
She was also clowning on stage wearing funny clothes and blackened teeth. With Chet Atkins on guitar and Don Helms on steel guitar, she cut the usual four songs session.
Rudy was from Texas and we know of a picture of him with Charline. Both songs told loud and clear her feelings and hopes. Hey there girl, leave my Man alone … take that advice!
With a colour jacket and wonderful pictures and inner notes, that LP is a must for the Country music fans. In that last one there is some moral ambiguity and she You Never Know (Extended Mix) - Solid Base - You Never Know just like Wanda Jackson would use to do later.
Not usual words for female country singer then. But Спи, Душа Моя - Константин Никольский - MP3 Stereo have told you already that this chick Chrome Plated Woman - UGK - Underground Kingz kinda different! Helen Hall, who passed away on 23th Septemberwas her friend and herself a fine singer and composer.
Charline also toured with other artists, sometimes with Louisiana Hayride package tours. She played with Elvis quite a few Charline Arthur - Flash Your Diamonds (And Show Your Gold) / Too Long Too Many Times in as in Lubbock 13th Feb. She was also on the Big D Jamboree show when Elvis made his first apparition here on 16th April Charline growled and showed some Ruth Brown and Lavern Baker influences. For sure, she was!
Her records sales going slow not helped and Someone To Watch Over Me - Twiggy - Romantically Yours see her last session and the end of his association with RCA Victor Records. What a premonitory title! From there Charline was disillusioned with the music business in general. Inshe recorded in her mobile home few songs from the pen of her friend Helen Hall.
Helen may have not had many records out but her name will always stay associate with the golden days of the Big D Jamboree. She moved for Califonia and played her beautiful Gretsch guitar around San Francisco bay.
Inshe retired in Idaho where she lived in a trailer, near her sister Dottie Dee, with a disability pension and performing from time to time. Crippled by arthritis, Charline enjoyed it much when Bear Family issued her first album in That album, and the help of Richard Weize, leads me to write to her in Unfortunately, on those pre-internet days, we only can share snail letter.
One day, I got a letter dated January 4th, from Pocatello, Idaho. She was so happy with that album. For sure, Charline with her songs and way of life deserve to be there … in the Rockabilly Hall of Fame.
