Dick Miller




Our fellow blogger from France Xavier already posted this record on his blog but I honestly feel my record sounds better and I also have the b-side. So I'm breaking my rule of not posting records that have been posted elsewhere.

Mercury 71658
Year: 1960

Indeed a very nice sounding copy.

Nice one. It's got that east Texas honky tonk sound.

Thanks Westex. I am honored to get a comment from a blogger I have so much respect for.

WESTEX said...

You're being kinder than kind, but thanks anyhow. Often stop by to enjoy "Some Local Loser". Need to link to it...

Glad to see this posted. This was originally released on the Covina, Calif. based Toppa record label. Jonie Mosby (of Johnny & Jonie Mosby fame) is the harmony vocalist on the record and the late, great Ralph Mooney is playing those tasty licks on the steel. A 10 plus record and an excellent smaple of California country music from the early 60's

Hi! Thanks for the posting, definitely better than on my site. I'd picked the tunes from Youtube or elsewhere (a private CD). Do you know the number of original Toppa issue? Also I need flipside and number to Toppa "World's Champion Fool". This is for an intended complete feature on Dick Miller. Thanks! Xavier
