Bob Atcher (1914 – 1993) was one of the most popular country music entertainers of the post-World War II era, enjoying a 21-year career at OKeh and Columbia Records, as well as major radio stardom on WLS' National Barn Dance out of Chicago. His range of material ran from traditional country and comic novelty songs to folk. In 1948, Atcher cut two of the earliest LPs ever released by Columbia, a pair of 10" discs devoted to cowboy songs and folk music (Early American Folk Songs, which contained one of the earliest extant commercial recordings of "Devilish Mary," a 19th century folk song that would become part of the repertoire of the members of the Grateful Dead). – Source: allmusic.com
