Tops Hillbilly (2nd batch)

Here is the 2nd batch of Tops hillbilly covers from my collection (and one track from ebay).  About 42 tracks, in all.  I've also included another one from the budget Waldorf label.  It even says "Bonus" on the label, so that's what it is here too.

Not all tracks on the discs were included.  Sometimes the records are in such bad shape that the needle won't track through the grooves.  And in other cases, such as Hank Smith, I didn't include them because that's actually George Jones under a pseudonym.  And you should already have everything he did by now.

Billie Morgan

excerpt from Nate Gibson's wonderful book, which anyone needs to read if they are interested in Starday:

"Among the first at Starday’s doorstep was Billie Morgan, a raspy-voiced thirty-six-year-old mother of four.  Morgan grew up and lived in Nashville, though her singing style is more commonly associated with the Texas honky-tonk sound. Nashville session fiddler Dale Potter recognized her talent and brought her to the Starday offices.  Potter knew that Pierce was looking for the more traditional country artists and was impressed with her songwriting credits, which by 1959 included over 150 songs. Pierce was also impressed and signed her on the spot. Her first recording session was three days later and within ten days her first record, “Life to Live” (420), co-credited with Potter, was released in January 1959. The song, a stirring answer to Stonewall Jackson’s “Life to Go,” hit the Billboard charts on March 23, 1959, peaking at #22. Though only a modest hit, it significantly gave the new Nashville-based Starday its first taste of national radio exposure."

I know nothing of this artist, or the female vocalist on the bside.  Does anyone know what melodic instrument is being played?

I'd bet this group is from Minnesota or nearby.  Maybe someone will have info to share in comments.

I feel the address on the label is that of the artist, not the record company.  But it's hard to say.  There was another disc with Kooba publishing on it, also an out-of-state artist recording at Kay Bank.

I imagine the "Car" in the Re-Car name was for a person named Carbaugh, who is also the Publisher.
The label issued about 20 45rpm singles and a few LPs.  One LP was of an interview with George Harrsion's sister.  I believe it caused George to get tiffed at his older sister for capitalizing on his fame.  In the late 60s and early 70s, there was another LP label called Recar that issued polka discs.  Not sure if it is related to this one.
