513-A is a different version to the earlier release on SAVANNAH 505. In fact, it's more slicker than the original and the steel guitar break has been practiced and honed to perfection. The sound quality of Savannah 513 recording is a lot clearer on this disc than the previous release. According to the blurb on a DJ copy of one of his King releases, (1181) Buddy was born in Fitzgerald, GA and was 19 years of age when this disc was released. Sadly, I’ve yet to hear the flip side and only 78rpm copies of Savannah 513 have surfaced. By March 1957, Buddy was appearing on WTOL-TV, Savannah, GA daily between 1:30 and 2pm, Monday to Friday and a 7:00 to 7:30 slot every Friday evening. Buddy died in 1992. (MC / Al Turner)
