Texas Blues: Bill Quinn's Gold Star Recordings

Located in Houston, Texas, the Gold Star Recording Company was an essential source for local and regional blues, country, and Cajun records in the years following the end of World War II. This collection of recordings from 1947-1951, features Texas-based blues musicians L. C. Williams, Leroy Ervin, Melvin “Lil’ Son” Jackson, and Thunder Smith. Lightnin’ Hopkins sits in on several of the tracks. Notable tracks include “Gambling Blues,” “Boogie All the Time,” and “Cruel Hearted Woman.” The liner notes provide a detailed history of Gold Star Records and Bill Quinn.
