41 Ridge Lane Drive, Decatur, IL Source: Phillip J Tricker Junior bows back into the series with two well-recorded sides. Both are pretty much country music, but that was what was selling in bucket loads around the time the 45 hit the stores.The B side has a nice up-tempo feel with some nice bright piano playing, but again, Junior's vocals are a bit "sweet" for this die-hard Rock-A-Billy fanatic. But, saying that, both sides are worth more than a few listens.
Source: Phillip J Tricker Both are typical "Nashville Country" sounding country ballads. Both Jay and Willard have nice voices, but they're a bit dreary (for me). Jay wrote both sides, so perhaps Willard was a member of the band or a guest vocalist for the session.
BLUEGRASS 917 I'm guessing you'd describe the top side as a country lament. Not something that would keep me awake staring at e-bay whilst the clock runs down on a bid. Flipside is more of the same, yet is the better side. Great harmonies between Jim and Bill, but it's a bit monotone. (I say that about most country records however so don't take my word for it.) Once again, King Records (Crown Plastics) takes over the pressing duty from Starday. Source: Lars Lundgren / Dean Craige Morris
