Discography - Albums

Jana Jae "I Love Fiddlin' " (?)


Jana Jae "The Devil You Say" (Lark, 1979)
This album is a showcase for her considerable talents, with a mix of traditional and modern styles, including some trick tunes like the birdcall imitations of "Hot Canary" and the disco-fied "Orange Blossom Very Special," which was released as a single. The album is mostly all-instrumental, with a notable exception being "The Devil Went On to Tulsa," an answer song to Charlie Daniels' big hit of a few years earlier. Backing Jae on this album are the Nashville Superpickers all-star band, with pianist Hargus Robbins, steel players Lloyd Green and Buddy Emmons, and even a latter-day edition of the Harden Trio adding vocals.
