Jess Johnston & Jess Hillard - Superior 2760
Here's an extremely rare 78. This is fiddler Jess Johnston from West Virginia playing the piano and singing and Jess Hillard playing guitar with him. The flip side is just Jess Hillard.
These sides were recorded by Gennett Records in Richmond, IN in the latter part of 1931. The record was released on January 30, 1932 and kept in print until August 31, 1932. Total sales figures for this release were 341 copies. To my knowledge, this record has never been reissued, so this is the only place you can get it. So treasure this one! Not only is it rare, but it's GOOD!!!
