Bill Thompson

According to the internet, the Rebel label was based in Colorado.  This was pressed in Mn.  There are a couple of other 45s Bill released on the label, leading me to believe it was his own.

I'd like to hear those others, since I am fond of this one.

Many Rebel labels out there. First thought it was the Batesville, ARK, label: http://arkansas45s.blogspot.de/2011/04/rebel.html

You can also listen to another Bill Thompson record here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0NaYrNdV4cc&feature=g-user-u

I guess he's not the brother of Hank Thompson.

Chattahoochee Valley Boys? Thats Alabama. Bill Must Have moved around a lot. The utube one is a gold star texas press. But on this Kaybank press the label is the same as Shelby Smith on Rebel Arkansas. As there all custom Pressings I guess Bill Used who ever was the cheapest at the time. This is a mystery. Guess we need to find out where Bill Thompson lived. A research project for Tsroop?
