Again, great stuff. I can't seem to get past listening to Country Johnny Mathis. Listened to those two songs three times already.

Great Comp!! Way To Go!!

Rockin' Ed said...

Yeah I like Country Johnny too--I wish someone would put together a comp of his stuff--even on one of these blogs

Downloaded Volume 6 after reading your comments on 'visit Me In Music City'.

There are some brilliant tracks on the CD particularly Country Johnny Mathis and Jack Turner. You've got excellent taste when it comes to hillbilly music.

Looking forward to listening to others in the series.

Ed, I plan to download this and follow you after seeing the great line-up. Thanks for sharing.

Would you happen to have the B-side to the Ralph Bowman 45? I've always wanted to grabbing it after hearing the other song online at

As for Country Johnny Mathis, try

Got the link from Lonesome Lefty's Scratchy Attic, which is sadly abandoned it seems, but the links are still all working I believe.

Kegan--the flip is below---two artists on the same 45. A practice that Victor and Columbia did back in the acoustic days--but rarely done after WW2
