Detailed discography.

Polk Brockman of Okeh records discovered Narmour and Smith at the Winona fiddle contest organized by Doc Bailey in 1927. Their recording, �Carroll County Blues,� with �Charleston #1� as a B-side, was �one of the biggest selling records of 1929,� according to Talking Machine World, a recording industry trade paper. �Someone I Love� was nearly as well received. Their popularity continued even as the recording industry began to suffer during the Depression. Along with the Ray Brothers, they were the last of the Mississippi fiddle bands to record in that period.
