Darby & Tarlton

Although Tom Darby (1890-1971) and Jimmie Tarlton (1892-1979) helped introduce the blues to country music, they only recorded one Jimmie Rodgers song during their career, the sentimental World War I waltz, The Soldier's Sweetheart. Retitled Once I Had A Sweetheart, the song was recorded by for Columbia in April 1930. The record features the mournful steel guitar and vocal of Tarlton, with Darby playing back-up rhythm guitar.
