"Country" Johnny Mathis .
J-B Records # 1500 - 1952
Side A - Contented
Side B - Me For You And You For Me.
This is Johnny Mathis (Not to be confused with the other more famous Johnny Mathis crooner from the 60's and 70's) and is better known as "Country" Johnny Mathis . This is his second ever release and both songs were written by Mr Mathis himself.
He also became part of the legendary duo 'Jimmy & Johnny' and they cut some brilliant rockabilly in the mid to late 50's.
Here we have a typical country weepie A side and is just OK really and not really gonna set the world on fire but the flip is a real nice slow to mid tempo hillbilly tune and in my opinion the better of the two, nice song with some nice steel and Johnny's voice is smooth as ever.
Jim Bulleit the label owner went onto finance and help Sam Phillips set up Sun Records in Memphis in 1953 .
