Obscure Music Friday: The Tune Wranglers


In my ongoing campaign to hip people to western swing bands besides Bob Wills, I highlight here an obscure (that's the way we like 'em!) band called The Tune Wranglers that worked all over the southwest in the 1930's. They've definitely got the "swing" part of western swing down and in my view they were one of the best in the genre. The video here is "Red's Tight Like That", full of so many double, triple and quadruple entendres you might want to keep the youngsters away from this one!

For those who want more, there is a terrific collection put out by reissue house Doxy Records, available on all the streaming services.
