James Founty was born in Pike County, Alabama on August 31, 1907. What threw discographers and historians off for so many years was the fact that he used the performing name of Dan Pickett. Some thought that he might be Charlie Pickett who recorded for Vocalion in 1937, but Charlie was from Tennessee. In the summer of 1949 Pickett went to Philadelphia and recorded fourteen songs for Gotham Records. Five singles were issued by the label while the rest of the titles weren't unearthed until four decades later (with some alternate takes of some issued titles to boot). Things started falling into place when a letter from Founty to an attorney named Charles R. Paul dated July, 1950 turned up. Founty claimed that the label had defaulted on royalty payments, but upon investigation royalties had not been included in the contract between Founty & Gotham. The label paid him for the session and that was it. The contract also stipulated that he not record any of the same titles for another label for three years. That should of have been the last of their worries, because Founty, probably disgusted with the whole affair, never recorded again. He was a delightful performer, however, with his repertoire being covers of 20's and 30's songs making him a throwback to an earlier time. No one is certain what he did after his one and only session as far as his life. He passed away in Boaz, Alabama on August 16, 1967, a few days short of his 60th birthday.
