Roy King

This is from 1952. I couldn't find hardly anything about Roy on the internet. Looks like he only made a few records for Mercury. So enjoy this rare one.

Mercury 6338 - Cold Face But A Warm Heart ; Yodelin' Way Up There
Mercury 6361 - The Story of Shelly Liles ; Salty Tears
Mercury 6387 - Then You'll Be All Mine ; When Winter Comes
Mercury 6401 - I Can't Feel Those Kisses ; St. James Infirmary
Mercury 70026 - Mirror On The Wall ; Yodeler's Polka

I Can't Feel Those Kisses

Gloria Mann

This must be a promo copy, because the label is not the same as other Sound records. Mann's version went to #18 in 1955, a year after the Penguins had a hit with it.

Not your 60-minute man. Is this a vanity pressing? According to the internet, this record doesn't exist.

1959. I think the b-side is just as good as the a-side, which doesn't often happen.

On a day when we got about 17'' of snow here in Minnesota, there's no better record than this one to post. The Soma label was based in Minneapolis from 1957 until 1967. I couldn't find what year this was pressed. The name of the label comes from the owner Amos Heilicher, his name spelled backward. How about I start a Kired label?

This is from 1967. I sadly was not able to love her while she was living, so a posthumous love is all I can give.

Should I be posting this on the blog? Or is this something for the other Derek, at Derek's Daily 45? Maybe the only reason I'm doing it is because it's signed! This is probably my one and only soul/RnB posting. The next post we'll get back to the country.

This is from 1970.
