Vintage Country Vinyl - Johnny Horton

Another case from the Country Vinyl haul of a different record in the sleeve to the one advertised on the cover.
So instead of Johnny Horton's Greatest Hits today you are getting 1965's I Can't Forget You on the Columbia label.
The man who wrote Honky -Tank Man which of course was brilliantly covered by  Dwight Yoakam.
Nothing of that standard on this one which sadly is not in the best of condition.
Out in New Mexico would possibly have replaced Dean Owen's New Mexico on George's State of the Union series had I had it at the time.
This is followed by a slightly more mellow version of Lost Highway than the one from Jason & the Scorchers yesterday.

More of the same next Sunday.

Johnny Horton - Out in New Mexico

Johnny Horton - Lost Highway


  1. Johnny Horton has, as I have discovered for my ever brilliant series that you mention, written a lot of songs with states and cities in the title.

    1. I think I should have posted Out In New Mexico, what a song!

  2. 'Lost Highway' is one of those songs that you'd really have to be trying hard to ruin. It suits almost any arrangement.
