Jimmie & Leon Short - "Old Indians Never Die" (1947)



Some good ol' Delmore Bros.-type harmonizin' from the 1947 feature Hollywood Barn Dance. Yes, that's Ernest Tubb intro-ing the Shorts...

I ripped this off PappyStuckey's Youtube page. This guy manages to find the cool/rare C&W and Jazz clips. Amazing stuff.

I've been real busy with a bunch of personal stuff (nothing bad, all good) and I haven't had the time to dedicate to this blog like I used to. Hopefully that will all change, so keep coming back and check out Sick's Sick Six too. That's my other blog with more Horror/weird/crazy stuff.
Thanks, HG

OMG! That's my great-uncles (my grandmother's brothers)!! I grew up wearing J.M. & The Silver Saddle Roundup shirts as my PJs, and sitting at Leon's knee every weekend while he & I talked about anything & everything...

Do you know where I can get that video? We have a lot of audio recordings, but almost no video of them.

my mother was married to Jimmie Short for several years. Curious if any of his family reads this.

This is great! Never knew this existed. My dad, Tommy, was the youngest brother that played with Jimmy, Leon and Buddy. I just love hearing them sing :). Would love to have a copy of this and any other items you have of them. Thanks so very much, Darla Short

Gizmo, Who is your Mother? Would love any info you have about them.
I am Tommy's, the youngest brother, daughter. Did you know the rest of J.M.'s family?
Look forward to hearing from you. Thanks, Darla Short
