Danger 001

I'm posting two records I found yesterday from the Danger label. The Ballad of T.Eugene is about a murder that occurred in St. Paul, which was later fictionalized in the movie Fargo. Here is a summary from the IMDB webpage for that movie:

"In 1962, a St. Paul attorney named Eugene Thompson hired someone to kill his wife, Carol. Unbeknownst to Thompson, his man hired someone else to do the job. The second man fatally wounded Mrs. Thomspon in her house, but she managed to escape him. She went to a neighbor's house for help while her assailant fled the scene. The sloppiness and brutality of the crime attracted great attention. The murderers were quickly caught and gave up Thompson, who denied knowing anything about the crime for many years afterward."

Here's a book about the murder ----->>>>

Mr. Thompson is out of prison now and living in the twin cities. Learn more here

A.D.C. is an acronymn for Aid to Dependent Children. It is a cash assistance program which operated from 1936 to 1996. The singer is taking advantage of the Federal Gov't on both sides of this record. Pretty good!

A country singer named George Kent released a record called "Hello, I'm A Jukebox". In the background of that record a woman sings a lonely tune. Here is that tune.

And here's a link to the George Kent record:

Unknown year. Sometime in the 1960s.

A version of this song was issued in 1954 on the Mercury label by an artist named Jimmie Fletcher. Don't know if anyone else recorded it. I really like the lyrics to this tune. It has new meaning now that many people are giving up their city jobs and reverse migrating back to rural areas.

A great lyric "and when those taters begin to sprout, my humpback wife can dig 'em out". Such humor doesn't exist in country music anymore.

Sadly Gene took his own life in 1979, which makes this song sound a bit eery.
