White Cross on Okinawa

I have not updated this site in some time, and for that I am sorry, but I am contemplating a kind of a long-term project (that may live here or elsewhere, don’t know). The issue is that I don’t know where to start it. How far back in country music history can you go? Does anyone in 2015 care about what the depressing country songs of 1939 were?

In researching the issue, though, I ran across this–a recording of “White Cross on Okinawa,” by Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys, and it’s as depressing as you would possibly want.
