Wade Mainer - First Time in Stereo LP

Here's a Wade Mainer album that you don't see very often. I will assume that it was probably Wade's first album for Old Homestead. This album was recorded in November 1971. Interestingly, it is titled "First Time in Stereo," however that is not accurate because Wade and Julia Mainer's last session for King in 1961 that featured Red Wilson on fiddle was recorded in stereo, and it is one of Wade's best sessions in my opinion. It may be that the 1961 King session was never issued in stereo by 1971, but it was definetely recorded in stereo. This session is available on 2 cd set, Wade Mainer: I'm Not Looking Backward.

  1. thanks for this. I used to have a bunch of old homestead tapes of Wade when I was young (and living near Old Homestead's home of Brighton, MI) but I don't remember this one. Quite excited, especially since its not all gospel.


  2. I usually listen loud music in my house, that´s why I bought a big stereo, I like to spend my time at home I think it was the costa rica investment opportunities because I acquired my house and now I can do everything I want.

  3. wondeful!!!this whole information is absolutely useful and interesting. i like this blog because is easily understandable, and that is invaluable to the readers. I wanted to buy viagra online, and i saw this blog. I think this information will be useful for me specially because I want to get a great stereo and take advantage about it.

  4. This is a nice album. Old Homestead did us all a favor by recording Wade and Julia over the years.
