Singer and guitar player Banny Price is quite ill documented. He was playing for sure during the 1960's around Shreveport and East Texas. He recorded two excellent sessions, once for Ram Records at Shreveport and another at Tyler's Texas Robin Hood Brian Studios, produced by Ken Demary with the masterpiece OtisRushesque You love me pretty baby. Unfortunately, we don't know what happened after that to this very interesting bluesman.

Little Hat Jones, on the contrary, is a legendary bluesman, having recorded classic tracks for Okeh in 1929-30 and also backing Texas Alexander. Born Dennis (or George) Jones on 5 October 1899 at Bowie Cy (Tx), he seemed to have disappeared after 1930. But blues researcher Robert Tilling's tenacity finally unearthed (during the late 1990's) an article, an interview (with live recordings!) and photos from Little Hat Jones that were done in 1962-64 by a local journalist Morris Craig for The Monitor, a newspaper from Naples (Tx). This is the last testimony of one of the true Texas blues pioneer. At that time, Jones was a retired man from the Red River Army Depot at Texarkana. Little Hat Jones died at Linden on 7th March 1981.

Singer and sax-player Conrad Johnson (1915-2008) has had a long career as a musician and bandleader who recorded a handful of tracks under his name but many more behind other Texas artists. Johnson was also (and maybe foremost) a well known music teacher at Houston.

Singer and pianist Carl Campbell (1933-93) started a musical career in Houston at an early age (1948!), recording several sessions for Freedom, Sittin' In With, Peacock... He was also running for a long time his own Carl's Club in Houston in which he was regularly playing.

Thanks to Robert Tilling for his article on Little Hat Jones in Blues & Rhythm 135/171 and Sir Shambling for infos about Banny Price. ---Gérard Herzhaft, jukegh.blogspot.com
