Another one of those '50s type rocked up country classics that's been spinnin' around in my head for quite some time. It's got quite a nice
melody line attached to it, which I like and which somehow just begs you to rock it up, which obviously more artists than I have discovered throughout the years.
The most obvious band here in Europe that's been tracking it down is, of course, Status Quo. But the best version in my book was done
by the Pirates Of Mississippi way back in the beginning of CMT and all that. What got me stucked was that they had a terrific singer, which
lifted each song they recorded immensely. Without him they would've been just another country band tryin' to make it, I'm sure!
Anyway, as some of you may remember, this was a huge hit in the '50s for both Kitty Wells and Hank Thompson and also goes by the
name of "(I Didn't Know God Made) Honky Tonk Angels". My own version is yet another instru that I throw in for good measure during
that 1997 session I've mentioned so many times (Goddammit, seems like every track I've ever recorded was cut in '97...hm...will concentrate more on some real old ones for my next uploads, if nothing else just to show you how I sounded in the '60s and early '70s!).
Found some nice EP clips to go along with this one (I'm no expert at makin' vids, so I take whatever stuff I can find and throw it in. And these
clips suited the track remarkably well, I think, especially the live part after the guitar solo). So, put on your dancin' shoes again, cause here goes....
