MGM Golden Circle KGC 107 1965
A 1965 MGM reissue of Hank's 1953 classic "You're Cheatin' Heart" backed with his 1949 recording of "Lovesick Blues". Sorry for the quality of the record, but as they say... if it plays, I'll play it.

A fine sugary snail mail anthem from these fellows from Durant, Oklahoma.

The Uniques [44:33]
a side: "It's All Over Now"
b side: "Tired of Livin' in the Country"
SAR Records SAR-152 1964
The original and arguably best version of "It's All Over Now". This Sam Cooke produced single only made it to number 94 on the charts. Shortly after that, Murray the K reputedly introduced the song to The Rolling Stones who recorded it and it show them to their first number record in the UK, and number 26 here in the good ol' USA.

Music behind the DJ: "Red Baron" by Vince Guaraldi
