LUKE GORDON and his Lonesome Drifters
May 56 (BMI clearance on 15th Jun 56)(Recorded Apr 56)
ST-565-A Big New Dance
(L Gordon) (Starrite BMI)
ST-565-B Just Doin' What's Right
(Unknown Credits) (Starrite BMI)
(Artist based in Quincy, KY)

Another fine offering by the excellent Luke Gordon. The A side (to me) fully embraces the new music style that was frequently pushing aside country music at the time, whilst staying true to his musical roots. The band once again are excellent. Once again, Luke ventured to Ben Adelman's cool little studio on Cedar Street in Washington DC to record these tracks. I haven't heard the flip side as yet, nor have I seen the record. (MC)
