MP3 File Bobby Clanton The Way That You Are Van - 01664 Early 60s?
Van Records may have been based in Angleton, Texas, but this recording is pure South Louisiana! Not sure who Bobby Clanton is (any relation to Jimmy Clanton?) and some initial web searching turned up next to nothing. This is a haunting ballad in the classic Swamp Pop style. The only other 45 I've seen on this label was a garage rocker, so go figure... If you are not familiar with the phrase "Swamp Pop" go Here for a quick education.
This is simply a blog where I post interesting 45s that I come across. I'm not an expert on records or music history and I'm fairly lazy, so don't expect a lot of exhaustive background or research. Comments are highly encouaged...
Most of the music files presented here come from my personal 45 collection and are posted for purposes of musical enlightenment only. These are mostly obscure songs, over 40 years old, that may not have been reissued on CD. The intention is to raise awareness of underappreciated artists/songs. If you like what you hear, seek these artists out on CD or get out there and find some of this old vinyl for yourself... If you are the copyright holder and wish any files to be removed, I will do so immediately upon request.
