Pacemaker Records !

Claude King
Pacemaker Records # HB 1010 - 1953
A Million Mistakes / Why Should I ?

December 1950 KWKH Radio Station Studio, 509 Market St., Shreveport, LA – Claude King (Buddy Attaway [gt], Tillman Franks [bass], Webb Pierce [vcl chorus]. Producer: Webb Pierce)
003 A MILLION MISTAKES Pacemaker 1010 Gotham G 409
004 WHY SHOULD I Pacemaker 1010 Gotham G 409

Pacemaker Records at the time had some top names on their little label in Shreveport, Louisiana. Webb Pierce, Tillman Franks, Hal Harris & Sleepy Jeffers to name a few. 
Claude King had one release on Pacemaker ( This version was reissued on Gotham #409) this was never gonna set the country world alight in 1953 (as it was recorded some 2 years before) produced by Webb Pierce and sounds so dang good and Claude sings it with real passion with the addition of some beautiful Steel work. Then just a few years later after his years of hard work it finally payed off when he was signed to Columbia Records and had a string of hits during the 1960's.
