Here is a Texas country band that apparently was obscure even when this record was made.  I did a quick search of Dallas Morning News archives from the period hoping to turn up at least some biographical information on Tommy Dover – but I found nothing.    My guess is the band was strictly local to the Houston area where the Macy’s label was based.  The label was owned by Macy and Charles Henry and had no connection with Macy’s department store.  The label, which issued both country and rhythm and blues recordings, was founded in 1949 and went out of business in 1951.

    That’s my grandpa signing lead and playing the fiddle. :) Reach out if you ever want additional info. He was a great man. I’d love to know how you found him!
