Fred Boyd (2nd post)

This label was made purely to supply Seeburg jukeboxes with cheap records.  I mostly pass these by when I see them, but I've always liked the song Moody River.  Originally written by Chase Webster and issued as Southern Sound 101, the song became a hit for Pat Boone in 1961.  So this version is probably not long afterward.  In my opinion the song really suffers when you remove that piano refrain.

Boyd's deep voice reminds me a bit of Johnny Sea when he sang "My Baby Walks All Over Me." Add a Johnny Cash sound to his voice!
