Tommy Duncan
Texas Moon CD

Bob Wills and Tommy Duncan were partners since 1932, when Wills hired him to replace Milton Brown as vocalist in the Light Crust Doughboys.
When Wills left the Doughboys in 1933 to form what became the Texas Playboys, Duncan went with him.
For the next 15 years, as the group's fame spread through New Antonio Rose, Roly Poly, New Spanish Two-Step and similar hits, Bob and Tommy remained a team.
Finally, growing alienation between them led Wills to fire Tommy in September 1948.
Duncan immediately formed the Western All-Stars, made up almost totally of topnotch Playboy alumni including pianist Millard Kelso, guitarists Jimmy Wyble and Cameron Hill, Noel Boggs on steel guitar and fiddlers Joe Holley and Ocie Stockard as well as Tommy's brother, bassist-vocalist Glynn Duncan.
Landing a recording contract with Capitol, he had a nationwide hit in 1949 with a remake of Jimmie Rodgers' Gambling Polka Dot Blues.
Even when Western Swing's popularity began declining in the Southwest, Tommy stayed in the game.
After disbanding the All-Stars in 1950 to work as a solo vocalist, Duncan continued to record backed by outstanding Western Swing musicians including members of Ole Rasmussen's Nebraska Cornhuskers and the popular Texas group the Miller Bros.
Tommy never quit performing, and except for a brief early '60s reunion with Bob Wills, he stayed active as a solo artist until his death of heart attack in 1967.
Texas Moon features the complete Capitol recordings, plus Duncan's one single released on his own Natural Records label, and his first two 1951 sessions for Intro Records.
Also on the package are both singles Glynn Duncan recorded with the Western All-Stars for Cormac Records 1in 1950, with Tommy playing bass.
