INDIAN LOVE CALL ~ Slim Whitman ~ (1951) Imperial Records #8156 (charted in 1952) Flip side of "China Doll"
Slim Whitman - (January 20, 1923 -- June 19, 2013) Birth name: Ottis Dewey Whitman, Jr. Birth place: Tampa, Florida Place of death: Orange Park, Florida (at 90 years old) INDIAN LOVE CALL was recorded by Slim Whitman on December 1, 1951 and released in early 1952. It had also been hit for Artie Shaw & His Orchestra, w/ vocals by Tony Pastor, on the Bluebird Records label in 1938.
DEDICATED TO : Eva Mae Kirkland-Stahmer, a terrific lady, who gave her only copy of INDIAN LOVE CALL to "me", who was just a pimply-faced kid at the time, just because I said I liked the way it sounded. I accepted it thankfully and I have taken care of it ever since then. Sadly, Eva passed away several years ago, but whenever I play the record, I think of her. This is also dedicated to Eva's grandson, Anthony R. Stahmer, for being a damn good pal since our junior high school days. Friends don't come any better. We used to try to do a two-part harmony on INDIAN LOVE CALL, but we sounded like hell, so we agreed to just let Slim do the singing on this one.
Sleep well, Slim Whitman and thanks again, Eva. Heaven is full of greatly missed people.
