This fiddler is an obscure character from the heyday of Western swing, showing up on recordings by several different territory bands from the '40s and '50s, including the Blue Ridge Playboys with the young Floyd Tillman and sharing a three-way co-writing credit on the nonsensical "Jolie Blon Likes the Boogie" with none other than Bob Wills himself.

This is not the same Dick Jones who started out as a child actor and was the original voice of Pinocchio, but there is an interesting overlap: that Jones specialized in stunts with horses and assisted Gene Autry on many an occasion; Autry had been active on the Western swing circuit, even hiring the fiddler Dickie Jones for a gig or three. ~ Eugene Chadbourne, Rovi
