Larry Lee and The Westerneers .
Demo Records # 1029 - 1953.
Side A - Bitter Feelings.
Side B - While I Was Waiting For You .
This is the second recorded version of the classic song 'Bitter Feelings' written by Larry Lee AKA Larry Phillipson . The first was recorded on the 'Mode' label probably in 1952 and is in a more bluegrass style, this superb version on 'Demo' is more of a straight country style and is clearly leading the way to the more Rockabilly version that was to be recorded and released on the 'Cinch' label in 1959 as Larry Phillipson and the Larry Lee Trio.
This version on 'Demo' is pure classic country and is just marvelous, recorded with great feel and shows superb song writing skills by Larry and you can tell that he believed in this song and was determined to make it work no matter what it took. It is now a classic rockabilly song and the 'Cinch' version is loved by the rockin' vinyl collectors.
