Jerry Byrd’s name may not be known to everyone, even though he played on Hank Williams’ version of Lovesick Blues. This album cherry-picks the songs he recorded as a named artist, and performed on as a musician, and we aim to make his contribution to the music world more common knowledge. Atomicat Records (ACCD 146) present a value for money thirty-two song album Byrd’s The Word (with a supporting cast), which is a tribute to Jerry Byrd as a performer and studio musician.The album is embellished with sleeve notes, has a detailed session information, and is lovingly designed by artist Urban Zotel.
