Molly O'Day


Molly O'Day was a rural country singer. Some of it is gospel. The Tramp on the Street is a particularly moving. The Drunken Driver is a story song, somewhat violent, best song here. This is country music, not pop in the least. Really good stuff.

Teddi King


This is Teddi King's big band period from 1949-1954. I love her album All The King's Songs. Goodbye Mr. Chops and her version of Moonlight in Vermont are pretty.

David Houston's greatest hits


I like the country singer David Houston. Margie Bowes and him were the only good things in the horrible movie Cottonpickin' Chickenpickers. Almost Persuaded is the best song. I like the duet My Elusive Dreams with Tammy Wynette. I wish their album together could be on cd. I also like the joyous Mountain of Love.
