Jenks Tex Carman: Hillbilly Hula

1-CD with 16-page booklet, 20 tracks. Playing time approx. 50 mns.

Let's hear it for a true nutter. Acoustic slide guitarist Tex Carman couldn't play in tune to save his life, and he sang occasionally in a mixture of English and gibberish that he probably thought was Polynesian. Everything's redeemed by his irrepressible energy and unabashed looniness, though. Here are all his '51- '53 Capitol sides, including Hillbilly Hula, Hi-Lo March, Samoa Stomp, Locust Hill Rag, Dixie Cannonball
and 15 others. Fans of the slide guitar and steel guitar need this.

Jenks Tex Carman

geb. 14. 5. 1911 in Hardinsburg - Kentucky gest. 6. 2. 1967 Record Labels: Four Star, Capitol, Sage & Sand, Crown, Rem Jenks Tex Carman, ,The Dixie Cowboy“, ein eigenwilliger Sänger, der als Steel Guitar Spieler einen ganz persönlichen Stil entwickelt hatte, begann seine Karriere in den frühen 30er Jahren bei Vaudeville-Shows und Radiostationen. In den 40er Jahren arbeitete er vor allem an der Westküste. Zu seinen bekanntesten Titeln gehören ,Hillbilly Hula“, ,Dixie Cannonball“ und ,The Artillery Song“. Wahrscheinlich der einzige, der den Gitarrenstil von Jenks Tex Carman heute noch pflegt, ist der Schweizer Peter Gisin.

 

 

Jenks Tex Carman

The Carman family dates back at least to the revolutionary times in America when Elijah and Betsy Carman gave birth to a son, Andrew, in North Carolina in 1783. Andrew Carman moved to Breckinridge County, Kentucky, where the family has remained ever since. Tex was born Jenkins Carman on May 14, 1903 in the town of Hardinsburg, Kentucky. His father Alford was Andrew Carman’s grandson. Alford and his wife bore eight children of whom Tex was the seventh born. Various sources have listed Tex’s birth year as alternately 1911 and 1914, but these contradictions were most likely perpetuated by Carman himself (Upon returning to his home town for a visit in 1962, Carman stated his age as 56 years old, but this too was a fabrication.) T

his is but one aspect of Carman’s life that smacks of mystery as few details are known about his life other than isolated anecdotes and publicity blurbs that were duplicated ad nauseum on album covers. His penchant for wearing Indian regalia in public appearances and his occasional musical references to Indian themes (specifically Cherokee, i.e. Locust Hill Rag) more than hints to Carman’s possible ancestry as a native American (A 1962 Sage album is entitled ‘The Old Indian’ and features Carman sporting a Cherokee headdress and an assuredly un-warriorlike countenance!). Inquiries to the Cherokee nation in North Carolina, however, reveal no records of a Jenkins Carman having been registered. The Breckinridge County Archives notes that Jenks’ great-grandfather’s first wife claimed to be a Cherokee Indian.

The Carmans were farmers, but like many rural families at the turn of the century, they loved music, participating in informal musical activities at churches and schools in Hardinsburg. Young Jenkins displayed an early aptitude for music; at the age of twelve he was reportedly an expert at strumming the old family guitar. Probably while still in his teens, Jenkins ventured away from home into the entertainment world, first as leader of the International Clee Club Quartette with the Continental Lyceum Chautauqua Bureau of Louisville, Kentucky. After two years with the Quartette, he embarked on a variety of vaudeville tours, including Loew’s Time, Bently Theatrical Agency Time of St. Louis, Missouri, and others. Leading the nomadic existence of a vaudeville performer, Carman spent much of his career on the go, rarely settling in one place for more than a brief period and developing few close relationships. Even those who performed with him on a daily basis on Town Hall Party in the 1950s knew little about him.

On November 12, 1929, Jenkins Carman cut two sides for Gennett in Richmond, Indiana. The two titles, Gypsy Lady and Carson Robison’s Railroad Boomer were never issued.
