Wounded Knee Polka/ Lucky’s Lullaby
Ecco-Fonic – EF 1002 [1994]

Formed by members of the Fly-Rite Boys, The Country Cabin Boys were more a recording project than an actual band. They were Ashley Kingman on guitar, Lee Jeffriess on steel guitar, Bobby Trimble on drums, and ex-Ecco-Fonic Johnny Noble on double bass. Wally Hersom avoided bass duties to concentrate on the recording.
The band performed instrumental hillbilly jazz in the same vein Speedy West and Jimmy Bryant did.
A-side is a polka featuring a guest appearance by former Fly-Rite Trio member, the great TK Smith.
The flip-side, Lucky’s Lullaby, would later appear in an updated version called “Rhapsody In Violet” on the Fly-Rite Boys solo album “Big Sandy presents…”
