|Welcome to the Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys Tiffany Transcriptions website. The Tiffany Transcriptions, recorded in San Francisco between 1946 and 1947 are some of the most revered recordings, of any type music, ever made.
The Tiffany Transcriptions were designed to be a pre-recorded (transcribed) radio show of Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys, hosted locally by radio stations across America. This website will tell the history of these legendary recordings and other related information about Bob Wills and his years in California.
Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys recorded over 458 individual recordings for the Tiffany Music Company of Oakland, California. This number includes false starts, incomplete takes, mic checks, intros and outros, etc. There were more that 360 complete takes recorded. Only around 150 have been issued on LP or CD. See the discography above for details.
