STARDAY RECORDS 520

Never heard or seen this disc, though unusually for most Starday Custom Discs, this seems to have a Starday Matrix instead of the usual record issue number and a A/B prefix. Bramlett also recorded another disc which was pressed by RCA ("Country Love" / "A Man With A Broken Heart" - GIBSON RECORDS No. #) in 1957 and also recorded gospel for BRC Records. (MC / PJ Tricker).

Back about 1955 or so, the first mention of Howard Bramlett, who was one of the stars of the Saturday Night Jamboree that aired over WROM-TV out of Rome, Georgia. That show aired on Saturday nights from 7:00 to 7:30pm and from 8:30pm to 10:00pm.

He first started singing with his sister at church when he was a youngster they said. In 1945, he started performing over the Armed Forces Network. They mentioned he was the leader of the band, the “Tennessee Valley Boys” on the Jamboree show on WROM-TV.
