Cliff Richard-Move It [1958]

A Classic rocker from the UK. It's amazing that with all his worldwide success, he never made it here in the US.

Patsy Ann Noble- Good Lookin' Boy [1961]

Another Aussie singer. You'll notice that whoever posted this uses the UK pressing _ I Don't think it was issued in the U.S.

Col Joye-Aussie Rockabilly

This guy I guess is the Aussie Elvis. I found out that his name was Col--not Colonel. Anyway, this is good stuff

The Four Pennies-Juliet

Not all of the British Invasion groups were successful in invading the US charts..this one is a prime example. The Four Pennies had this one hit--it was issued on the PHILIPS label here but the label was too busy promting the FOUR SEASONS and let this records slip by....

Buckinghams-Don't You Care [1967]

Again from 1967, this was live on the Smothers Brothers Show--the vocals are done live over the instrumental track-that's why there's an echo effect.

Jerry Butler-Giving Up On Love [1964]

Time to meelow out from all that screamin' rockabilly..........so here's a neat little gem from 1964--issued on VEE JAY here in the US, but I found this nice label shot of the UK 45 on Stateside..

Sid Silver- Bumble Rumble [c. 1957]

This is a rare one--and I've put it up for red Neckerson who like the Bill Woods 45
go to You Tube to check out more of thedse goodies

Mack Vickey-Drive In

ANother Sun unissued treasure--now this one would've gotten Sam Phillips in a bit of hot water as the song is bascially a rip-off of Don Gibson'd I AIN'T A STUDYING YOU BABY !!!!

Jimmy Haggett-How Come You Do Me

now this one....was not issued in the 50s and when it was ished on a SUN comp--it was mistakenly credited to Junior Thompson!!!!!!!!!

Glenn Honeycutt-All Night Rock

....and again another unissued gem

Dean Beard-Rock Aroujnd The Town

Dean Beard--from Texas--he later joined the Champs !!!!!!!!!!!
His best 45s were Rakin' and Scrapin' and Party Party on Atlantic but this burner was another unissued SUN goodie

Narvel Felts--My Babe

This one kils Little Walter====and I don't say that too much since I'm always one to give the original full credit..nbut it DOES kill Dale Hawkins!!!!!!!!!

and this one was never issued in the 50s

Jimmy Wages-Miss Pearl

This one did get issued on a limited bootleg 45 in the late 70s-or early 80s

Jimmy Wages

one from c. 1957--never issued in the 50s

Jack Earls-Crawdad Hole SUN UNISSUED

Kanui & Lula-Oua Oua 1930s Hawaiian

Wow they were actually recording rockabilly in Hawaii back then--LOL!!

Red Raven Records 1950s

I'd seen these things around but never knew just exactly what they did. I guess you had to have had a special type of record player to play these on, with a mirror attached to the top.

These played at 78 RPM which is why the first part of this video sounds like someone on drugs.

Tennessee Thompson-Slippin a a Slidin'

Little Richard wasn;t the only one to do Slippin' and Slidin'
not the same song but a goodie just the same...

Al Urban-Won't Tell You Her Name [1958]

from the SARG label in south Texas comes this gem..

Bill Woods-Phone Me Baby

cool rockabilly from 1957.

Jim Lowe-Rock a Chicka [1957]

Here's a nice one--from the Green Door guy...

Mary Travers-RIP [Peter Paul and Mary]

Another great artist has left us--I'm not going to get into any political discussion here--just remember her for what she sang...that's why I chose this song to present.

RIP Mary

Vera Lynn--Number 1 UK at 92!

Vera Lynn---one of England's greatest singers, has reached the numbe one position in the UK with a greatest hits compilation--at 92 years of age making her the oldest artist to reach that point. Here in the US , her biugesty hit was 1952's "Auf Wiedersehn Sweetheart"--however, this is one of her most remembered hits...

I have't posted any cartoons lately, so I decided to pick one from the 50s--and a Disney cartoon to boot!! So stupid it's funny..Humphrey the Bear!!. You'll notice that the voice of the park rainger is the same as Droopy Dog from the MGM cartoons.
