Freeny’s Barn Dance Band’s complete output comprises six sides, recorded in a single session for the OKeh label on Tuesday, December 16th, 1930, in Jackson, Mississippi. Their modest recorded output contains some wonderful moments: the transcendently beautiful waltz Don’t You Remember the Time, a charmingly odd interpretation of Cocaine Habit called Croquet Habits, and this tune, Leake County Two Step.
My recordings of Freeny’s Barn Dance Band all sound a half-step high, so this tune sounds in A flat. I’m assuming that the tune is in G major, so that it can all be played in first position.
The strains are asymmetrical, with the ‘B’ strain twice as long as the ‘A.’Leake County Two Step
