Thanks to Bob with help in correctly identifying this record. Apparently not the Dezurik Sisters, as I had thought. Who knows why the artists on this record would use the same name. Not the first time a reader has corrected me. Sorry that I jumped the gun here.
Eddy Gober: "I was born in 1932 during what people call the
great depression. Five of us lived in a borrowed shack. It was borrowed
because they couldn't rent it. The owners let us live in it to keep it
from falling down. It leaked in all three rooms and there was no glass
in the windows. We were so poor we couldn't even afford to build an
When I was 11 years old, I stood in my front yard and
set some goals. I vowed I would never live like this. I would marry a
good woman, give our kids a college education, retire at 62 debt free,
and write a song that people would want to hear the second time. I
didn't realize how hard all that would be, but I have achieved all my
goals except the song thing. I\'m still working on that. If you are
listening to one of my songs and it brings a smile to your face, a tear
to your eye, or makes your day go a little better, you are making my
dream come true and I want you to know I appreciate you." Don't know much about this label, except I think it was a subsidiary of this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1sUpNpiUB94
These records compile Kay Bank recordings from mostly midwestern country artists from the 1960s. The songs were originally issued on labels such as Golden Wing, Bangar, Twin Town and Re-Car. Bud-Jet also issued another set of records called Top Teen Ballads, which compiled Kay Bank garage bands. There was also a polka series, and an album by Jerry Smith called "Best Loved Hymns". David Hersk, after he moved on from recording his Gaity records, got into printing and graphics, and did the covers for Bud-Jet LPs. He says the original artists were never given royalties from the Bud-Jet discs. They were sold for 99 cents in drug and dime stores, and probably gas stations.
I lugged these all the way over to the University of Minnesota map library so I could get high quality scans of the covers. See how much work this blog is.
