Description


Over the span of just two years from 1946 and 1947, Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys recorded over 400 songs for Tiffany Music, Inc., and the recordings became known as the Tiffany Transcriptions. They were meant to be aired on radio for a show featuring the band, but the label folded by the end of the decade, leaving the Tiffany Transcriptions to be forgotten to time.

But, music has the ability to persist through time and reemerge in ways previously unknown. After all, the Tiffany Transcriptions were unlike anything Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys had done prior. They were recorded in the quieter times during tours, typically with arrangements improvised in the moment, giving the band the freedom to create music that spoke directly from their hearts at any given moment. As the '80s approached, Kaleidoscope Records uncovered the Transcriptions, once again shining a spotlight on the band's music.

This VMP exclusive variant features 14 previously unreleased tracks from the Tiffany Transcriptions on 1LP Clearwater Blue vinyl for the first time ever.
