Note by Kevin Coffey: only the first Black and White hillbilly session (10000-10001) features a Six Westernaires lineup that was actually working together at the time - Cliffie Stone, Merle Travis, Tex Atchison and Red Murrell. The rest of the Black and White sessions that use that name, it is just a recording band that the label has given the Six Westernaires name to
