    I'd love to hear this stuff again (or for the first time).

    I think I've got a copy of "Johnny Willow" on its original 45 in the collection somewhere, because it sounds awfully familiar.

    Ok, so what was the JAF label about, Steve? That's where Fred had his two small chart hits, "Battle Of Gettysburg" and of course "Johnny Willow," both in 1961.

    Not sure we can forgive him for "Mr. Custer," though, it's pretty bad...:laugh: So is its followup, "Mister Livingston," but what the hell, he hadda put food on the table...:D

    Agreed that the Dobie Gray Charger material has never had good sonics, even in the original mono. The old Cordak 45 "Look At Me" was, IIRC, Dobie's first chart record, and a fine one; he became a journeyman after that, recording for at least a half-dozen labels until he finally scored huge with "Drift Away," among the last big hits on the Decca label. Like Fred, Dobie could use a decent comp also...:)
