When Kaleidoscope Records first reissued the Tiffanys, they sold extremely well, particularly Volume 2 “Best of the Tiffanys”. By the time Volume 7 had been released, sales were slowing down, and not everyone needed every volume. So it was time for “More of the Best”.
Steel guitarist Roy Honeycutt wrote the musician’s notes to Volume 8. Noel Boggs was the steel player on the May 6, 1946 sessions. By May 13th Boggs was gone and Roy was playing steel. He was also on the May 20th and May 27th sessions. By the time Wills recorded for Columbia Records in September, Honeycutt had been replaced by Herb Remington.
As mentioned elsewhere Tiffany owner Cliff Sundin had a treasure trove of memorabilia including two items used on this volume’s album cover. A beautiful ticket to the May 14, 1946 Zoom radio show, and a tour schedule for Bob Wills from the late 1940’s. The tour schedule shows they had few days off, and as pointed out in the notes, in the first 37 days on tour they covered 10 states.
