So he's a little history on today's selection. I never was much for country music, until a few years ago when I was in one of the local thrift stores and I found what appeared to be a freshly dropped off country music collection. I bought about 70 country 7"s that day as a roll of the dice. They were from the 60's and 70's and since they were 30% off that dad it wasn't that much of a financial gamble. After listening to these older country records I found quite a few artists that I liked.
Well this record was part of that selection. Before hearing this I just knew Jerry Lee from the "hits". Well when I first heard his rendition of "Big Legged Woman" I was in love. Bluesy, raunchy and full of sex. I loved it. The B-side is an Jimmie Rodgers tune and of course a country song and the reason it was in amongst all of those country 45's. I have no idea exactly when this record was released, 70's I'd imagine. The record says each song is taken from a different record. "Big Legged Woman" is from "Rockin' Rhythm & Blues" 1969 and "Waiting For A Train" is from the 1970 LP "Ole Tyme Country Music" which according to all music guide is a selection of Sam Phillips demos.
So give it a listen and enjoy until my next post.
