Eddie Shuler's All Star Reveliers
Goldband Records - # G 1021 - 1951
Ace Of Love / Hiding My Tears In The Rain.
In 1945 he recruited his own All Star Reveliers modeled after the Texas swing bands of Spade Cooley and Bob Wills. Much of the success of the Reveliers could be attributed to Eddie, himself, who emceed a radio show four days a week at station KPLC in Lake Charles. At KPLC in 1944, with either a wire recorder or primitive, one-track tape machine, he also recorded his first 78 rpms which were used mostly as demos to promote his band. In 1955 the Reveliers disbanded. "Not only was I tired of all the long nights and travel but also it was wreaking havoc on my marriage. You know how musicians always tend to attract the girls," he always said with a wink.
Although most of the early Goldband releases were dominated by the Reveliers, including the local hit of 1951, "Ace of Love," G 1021 - this issue was only ever released on a 78 rpm.
