The Great Speckle Bird

“The Great Speckle Bird” was written by Rev. Guy Smith, and used an old melody used for many other songs as far back as 1925’s “Thrills That I Can’t Forget.”

It was first recorded in Chicago on October 20, 1936 by Roy Acuff and his Crazy Tennesseeans. The story has been told that the studio was so hot during that three-day recording session, that everyone stripped down to their underwear. So imagine Roy Acuff singing this in his underwear.

This is a 78 RPM record that I purchased in 2009 as part of a large collection of singles and albums.
