Rockin' Sid
Avenue Records

Found this little baby in a junk shop in Baton Rouge for fifty cents! Signed!

Originally released in 1957 credited to Thunderwords, this record was re-released in 1963 with the label credit you see here. Not to be confused with Rockin' Sidney.
Nice Louisiana rockabilly sounds. This record demonstrates the correct way to play an electric guitar.

Very nice record. Very nice price too.

You can occasionally do well in Baton Rouge if you don't give up too easily. There's really not much in the way of shops. Like you, I stick to the thrifts and junk stores.

Thanks Ana. Found this one at Honeymoon Bungalow on Government st. in a very small box of 45s full of the usual 70s pop junk. I didn't know what it was, but figured I couldn't lose for 50 cents.
