Queer Country Junction returns this Saturday at the Kenton Club in North Portland. I'm always on the lookout for rainbow country songs to play at this event. It turns out the rainbow is a popular symbol in vintage country music. When I was digging for musical treasure in Minnesota I found rainbow gold!
This record is by Ruby Falls (originally known as Bertha Dorsey) who took her stage name from the water falls at Lookout Mountain in Tennessee. She charted nine Billboard country hits between 1974 - 1979. Unfortunately she passed away suddenly at age 40 of a brain hemorrhage.
Though she had all those hits and was even nominated "Most Promising Vocalist" by the country industry trade media in 1975, Ruby Falls is yet another artist who has seemed to have faded from the history of country music.
Help to change that by listening to my selection of the day and dance to it at the Kenton Club on Saturday! See ya soon!

I'm excited to highlight some of my favorite records in a variety of genres (soul, R&B, classic country, rockabilly, oldies, garage rock, etc). These won't all necessarily be "dance" records per se. They will all be records that I believe deserve a special listen. I simply love good music, rare or not. Hopefully you will spend some time here and love music right along with me! Lets give this a shot!
