This is my great uncle (my father's uncle on his mothers side) and I was just writing to say that it was a real treat to hear this!!! Thank You!!
This was a top ten record written and recorded by my father and only a few weeks after it was released it reached #4 on the bilboard chart. My father was local but certainly not a loser. He made 4 appearences on the Grand Ole Opry with one of the longest standing ovations in opry history. He had several other releases that did well on the charts. My father was a great entertainer and I could not be more proud of his success. Of the many talented singers and song writers only a handfull experience that level of success.
Thank you both for your comments. I certainly don't mean to imply that any of these artists are losers. The title of the blog comes from Bob Dylan's song Desolation Row. I just liked the sound of it, and sometimes I feel like a bit of a loser with all my records and no one to talk to about them. Hence the blog.
I grew up in the Ozarks and am familiar with Urel Albert's music; I always thought he was one of the best singers (and imitators) I had ever heard.
What a cool record. I almost bought this recently but talked myself out of it. I made a mistake! Thanks for posting. I just discovered this blog....it's fantastic! Greg

Was cleaning out my dad's closet, and found an LP by Urel Albert: One Man's Woman at a Time. Cinnamon Records, produced by Johnny Elgin. I don't have a turntable, so I don't know what the music sounds like.
Does anyone know anything about Johnny Dot who appeared with Urel Albert in 1974-75
Does any one know anything about Johnny Dot that also appeared with Urel in the mid 70's along with Marti Brown
