Pink Cadillac / Some Like It Hot
4 Star Records # 1662 - 1954
At My Expense / Have I Overstayed My Welcome ?
Rocky Bill Ford on this record shows us two really good Honky Tonk shuffle songs. Bill sure has a strong and pure country voice and this sits perfectly alongside the players on this record.
He also recorded for Gilt-Edge, Blue Ribbon and most famously his killer 45 'Have You Seen Mabel' / 'Mad Dog In Town, released on Starday in 1956.
4 Star Record # 1538 - 1951
Everybody's Trying To Be My Baby/ Please Come Back
Rex Griffin wrote this fine tune in 1936 ! and has been covered and adapted by many a fine artist/band ever since. The York Bros, Carl Perkins and The Beatles .
But Jimmy Short and the boys do a real fine job on their version from 1951, western swing at times, pure hillbilly at others, great song done with class by Mr Short.
4 Star Demo Record # 6726 - 1955
I Gotta Go Get My Baby / I Gotta Go Get My Baby by Teresa Brewer.
Before Marvin joined MGM he done some demos over at 4 Star and this little beauty is what emerged. Marvin showing us his powerful voice and owning the song from the very 1st bar.
