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.

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.

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.
