This one is really a mystery. I haven't been able to find any info on the artists or the label. This appears to be one those those cheap budget labels like Hit or Prom records, where they threw some anonymous studio musiscians together to cover whatever songs were popular at the moment, hoping that you wouldn't notice or care that it wasn't the original artists. Anyway, anonymous or not, these guys (whoever they may be) are pretty blistering! Listen to that guitar... Again, if you know anything about this one, please comment below...

I remember 1955 when the A&R man for Dig this Record label was pushing the fact that the 45 EP would have 4 hits per record, quite a bargain in 1955 when a 45 sold for 99 cents, with a predictably awful B side.

Thanks for the Welcome. I found your blog looking for info on The Two Crows & the Diggers. My site is a discography listing

Appreciate the blog. And the opportunity to share info on these old 45s.
