Orange Blossom Boys

The Untold Story of Ervin T. Rouse, Chubby Wise and the World's Most Famous Fiddle Tune
by Randy Noles
One of the most bizarre stories in all of popular music is the history of "Orange Blossom Special," arguably the century's best-known fiddle tune. The man credited with its ownership, Ervin T. Rouse, endured tragedy, alcoholism and mental illness. The man who claimed co-ownership, Chubby Wise, achieved fame as the seminal fiddler of the bluegrass genre, but struggled to overcome personal demons and to heal the scars of childhood abandonment and abuse. This fascinating book uncovers how their legacies are forever linked with the legendary diesel streamliner which inspired the tune. The CD includes several recordings of this historic song.

The spirit of the music is quite infectious, and quickly you will find your toes tappin', your fingers flyin', and your bow dancing!
