Great Show - Groovies, Wray, Cochran, Montez, Fats, Ellis, Freeman. Yeah Yeah Yeah.
Interesting article in the Times this week about a Documentary about Native Americans and their contribution to our beloved R&R/ Pop Music. Mentions Link Wray among others.
Did Sylvester Stuart produce the Bobbie Freeman track? Thanks for the great sounds.
Long may you rock , longer may you roll!

yep, matt, you are pulling out the greats today!

This Lee Dorsey is giving me heartache I don't have it! OOH what's this with the smoking intro!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 8/5/17 1:52pm MattBelow:

@Doc Rock: That single was on King and not Autumn so I am not sure if there is Sly involvement. I gotta research that!
Hey Sissiophonic!

Apologies for my many typos. Throwing records around and being harassed by Todd-o-phonic Todd!
  Sat. 8/5/17 2:03pm Doc Rock:

Hey Matt - do you know what year that B Freeman single on King is from? I'm guessing Sly is not involved. I think he was an Autumn staff producer
Not sure he had anything to do with King.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 8/5/17 2:05pm MattBelow:

@Doc Rock: 1960
