My Filipino Baby Ernest Tubb
Got to listen to another 45 vinyl record today. It is by DECCA Records and is US pressed. The artist is American Ernest Tubb and he was active from the years 1936 to 1982. People also call him the Texas Troubador and he was one of the pioneers of the genre of country music and honky tonk. He was a singer songwriter and also a bandleader. He is also a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame.
The cover has some old age issues because I think that this records was fro the late 40’s to the early 50’s. Tearing is present in the upper and lower part of the cover and also skme tearing in front and back. The record on the other hand has been preserved well. Their was no visible scratches and no background noise when I played it. The only thing I did was to clean it with soap and water. Then wiped it clean with cotton cloth.
