An Oak Cliff-based band performs a tribute to the producer responsible for Robert Johnson’s only recordings and Bob Wills’ “San Antonio Rose,” among many others, at the new Downtown amphitheater this weekend.
Law recorded blues man Robert Johnson at the Gunter Hotel in San Antonio and at 508 Park for the American Record Corp. in 1937. Law also recorded dozens of tunes from Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys there, including Wills’ signature song, “San Antonio Rose,” in the 1930s.
Law recorded Lefty Frizzell, Ray Price, Johnny Cash and Marty Robbins at studios in Dallas and Nashville.
The Lucky Pierres will perform a selection of the old-time country and blues classics that Law put on wax in the free show.
