Yes, That record was on the Fabor label. "Dance, Gypsy, Dance" was a tune
wrote and recorded, while the other was a tune by Ginny Wright and I. I
on the Louisiana Hayride for awhile before I came into the Army in June
1954. Was just getting a bit of real action on some songs and records, but
had to leave it all behind. Then Elvis Presley arrived on the Hayride
I left, and threw everything into rock and roll. The Hayride folded only a
few years after that.
Really brings back some old memories!
And yes, I'd love to have a copy of those tunes (mine got lost in my Army
moves somewhere over the years quite some time ago).
My address is:
2311 Big Cove Road
Huntsville, AL 35801-1351
I don't know the real answer to why Patton was killed; Tony probably has a
far better perspective on that one than I do.
Hang in there and thanks in advance!
