May 57  (BMI Clearance on 21st June 1957.)
KEN CLARK and his Merry Mountain Boys
45-631-A - Ho! Ho! Love ‘Em Joe
(Clark)   (Starrite BMI)
45-631-B - Quit Fool (Mama’s Lookin’)
(Clark)   (Starrite BMI)

Okay, so I know darn all about Clark, except he recorded for Starday main series and for the Nashville label (assoc with Starday). 
A side is a nice uptempo number with fiddles, Steel Gtr, Dobro and lead guitar and some lovely Starday Sounding echo. Some call it country, some call it Rock-A-Billy. Whatever the musical tag, it's a lovely record. B side is more country/hillbilly and there's a little less echo. Another uptempo side and very nice it is too. Cowboy Copas recorded at least one song of Clark's. (MC)

Label Shot : Nathan Gibson (with thanks to Neil Scott, whose original copy was used here, despite the label looking like it had been attacked by Martians.)
