BIG STATE RECORDS 592

BIG STATE RECORDS 592
468 Third St, Port Acres, TX
Oct 56  (BMI Clearance on 11th January 1957)
RONALD R A FAULK
45-592-A - You'll Never Know
(R A Faulk)   (Starrite BMI)
45-592-B - My Baby's Gone
(R A Faulk)   (Starrite BMI)


The A side is a nice typical Texas honky-tonk / hillbilly song. Flip side is a thunderous rocker with heavy double bass and biting guitar. One of the best examples of the Starday rockabilly sound. The ending of the song is one of the most chaotic pieces of music every pressed into shellac as the musicians don't seem to know where to end. So they all seem to try to end at once with little success. (Sadly, nobody seems to have signalled to the bass player they're stopping!). This makes the side even better for it in my opinion.
Both Roland and his brother (Autry) were veterans of the Port Arthur, TX scene. (Port Acres is slightly west of Port Arthur). Kirby London recorded one of Roland's songs on D 1174.
This disc was pressed on both 45 and 78rpm formats.  (MC)
