Obscure Music Friday: Milton Brown and His Musical Brownies


Most people who are at least vaguely aware of that wonderful musical genre called "western swing" have heard of  Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys. But sadly few know of Milton Brown and His Musical Brownies, a competing band that for my money was better. Brown, with Wills, is generally credited with founding western swing but he died in 1936 from injuries suffered in a car crash so never had a chance to make the impact Wills did. But he was great! Do yourself a favor and give Mr. Brown and his smokin' band a listen.
