In this week's episode it's all Little Darlin' Records. Every single song you'll hear was recorded for Aubrey Mayhew's independent Little Darlin' label, mostly between 1966-1970. At a time when smaller labels were prolific in Nashville, Little Darlin' stood out - and it still does. The lynchpin of the Little Darlin' sound was Lloyd Green's innovative and inventive steel guitar, and Green's picking from that era still has fellow steelers scratching their heads in awe. Little Darlin's brand of country music was hard-edged, twangy and perfectly engineered to jump out of the radio and grab your attention. Oftentimes Little Darlin' specialised in the darker side of country and their roster boasted many big names over it's stuttering existence, including LD's centerpiece in Johnny Paycheck. This week it's all magnificent, hardcore country music from the deep Little Darlin' vaults and our feature is a 1967 album from a talented LD trio in The Homesteaders: "A New Frontier".
