One of the new names to me in the Vintage Country Vinyl haul was Jimmy Dean.
No, not that one but a TV host, actor, business man and country singer
Some Jimmy Dean facts.
- He founded the Jimmy Dean Sausage Company with his brother Don (the picture above was a clue for that one)
- He had a supporting role in Diamonds Are Forever as billionaire Willard Whyte
- He was a member of The Virginia Board of Game and Inland Fisheries
I'm conscious that I'm beginning to sound a bit like George now!
These two numbers are from Jimmy Dean's Golden Favourites - a Hilltop Country and Western Recording ( the authentic sounds of Country & Western Music) on Fontana.
I had hoped to feature Why Don't You Shut Your Mouth but unfortunately the track kept skipping.
More of the same next Sunday.

...that's not necessarily a bad thing
you failed to mention his most famous song "Big bad John"!ReplyDelete
Today's two tracks are very listenable.
I know the song but couldn't have told you who sung itDelete
Come for the country, stay for the sausage!ReplyDelete
