Moon Mullins and the Night Raiders

The Night Raiders - Cottonpickin' (Profile 4007), 1959

Moon Mullins and the Night Raiders

Much has been written of the critically highly acclaimed recordings of the Night Raiders. Their songs are cult favorites among rock'n'roll collectors today and bestowed a place in rock'n'roll history upon the group's singer and pianist Mickey Hawks. Much lesser known is the band's founder and manager Moon Mullins, who led the Night Raiders for more than ten years.

He was born Caswell Dallas "Moon" Mullins on August 15, 1937, to Caswell Burl Mullins (1918-1946) and his wife Mae Elizabeth. A native of Moore County, North Carolina, Mullins soon showed a talent for music and eventually learned to play guitar. He married Emalee Proctor in 1954, with whom he had two children, Tony and Tonya. Mullins and his wife remained together for the rest of their lives.

By 1957, Mullins had assembled a bunch of guys to form a band called "The Night Raiders." At that time, Mullins still held a regular day job; music was only a sideline for him. They played mostly country music around High Point, North Carolina. The band also had a local radio show and Mullins was doing a regular DJ show on WMYN in Eden, North Carolina. In 1957, the band's original drummer fell out and was replaced by Robert "Bob" Matthews, who had just finished high school. Matthews had previously played in various bands, including a rock'n'roll group called "Rhythm Rockers." Also part of that group was 17 year old David Michael "Mickey" Hawks, who played piano and sang. At the suggestion of Matthews, Hawks joined the group in September that year, although Mullins was not too enthusiatic to have a piano in his country band. Hawks was particularly influenced by Little Richard and Jerry Lee Lewis, which you can certainly hear in his vocal style and piano playing.

The band now had a singer who was adept at singing the rock'n'roll hits of Fats Domino, Little Richard, Ray Charles, and others. Mullins, who played guitar at the time, usually sang the country songs. Being now a rock'n'roll combo, Mullins bought himself a saxophone and learned to play it. At that time, the Night Raiders consisted of Mullins on vocals, guitar and sax, Mickey Hawks on vocals and piano, Bill Ballard on lead guitar, John Owens on bass, and Bob Matthews on drums. 

The Night Raiders played a lot of the local dancehalls in the High Point area and in 1958, Mullins suggested to cut a record. He asked Hawks to write a song for recording. Hawks came up with a rock'n'roll tune called "Bip Bop Boom." The band found a tiny studio called "Robbins' Recording Studio" in Greensborough, North Carolina, and a session was set up. The studio was run by Eddie Robbins, who also had the small Robins Red label. Probably in the spring of 1958, Mullins and the Night Raiders recorded two ouststanding rockers, "Bip Bop Boom" and "Rock and Roll Rhythm," the latter composed by Hawks and Matthews. On both performances, Hawks took over the vocals with Ballard and Mullins  throwing in top notch solos on guitar and sax.

Robbins released both recordings on his label with only 500 copies being pressed on red vinyl, which was quite unusual at the time. The record was sold at gigs the Night Raiders played. Shortly afterwards, Mullins managed to release the songs again on Ted Prillaman's Mart label in Martinsville, Virginia (Mart #45-113), which is located about 56 miles north of High Point. Prillaman was also a local radio DJ and a friend of Mullins'.

The Night Raiders were playing a venue in Sanford, North Carolina, one night, when they were discovered by a man called Ian (or Ed) Thomas from Chicago. Thomas was friends with Mike Oury, who owned the Profile record label in Chicago. Thomas recommended the band to Oury and sent him the record the band had recorded. Oury was impressed enough to come down to High Point and sign the Night Raiders to a three year recording contract. He re-released "Bip Bop Boom" / "Rock and Roll Rhythm" on his label later in 1958 (Profile #4002). The record caught on in the Chicago area and sold over 50.000 copies. It was also released through Trutone Records in South Africa and reportedly hit the #1 spot there in Johannesburg. 

Billboard pop review October 13, 1958

The Night Raiders embarked on a tour through the midwest and had two more records released on Profile. The first of those was the great instrumental "Cottonpickin'," showcasing Bill Ballard's skills on the guitar as well as "Hidi Hidi Hidi" with Hawks on vocals (Profile #4007). It came out about one year after the original release of "Bip Bop Boom." Their next and last one on Profile was the pounding "Screamin' Mimi Jeanie" b/w "I'm Lost" (Profile #4010) in 1960. Both singles were produced in Chicago at a professional recording studio but couldn't repeat the success of the band's debut release. 

Billboard pop review May 18, 1959

In 1961, Mullins and the Night Raiders recorded again for bluegrass musician Jim Eanes' Lance label out of Richmond, Virginia. The tracks were "Gonna Dance Tonight, Part 1," a vocal number, and "Gonna Dance Tonight, Part 2," an instrumental version (Lance #005). Around the same time, the Hunch label in New York City re-released "Cottonpickin' / "Hidi Hidi Hidi." Afterwards, Bob Matthews left the group and was replaced by Leroy Butler on drums. The Night Raiders kept on appearing in North Carolina during the 1960s with different members, apart from Mullins and Hawks. In 1968, the band did one last recording for Piedmont Records in Danville, Virginia (Piedmont #45-2044). One side featured "Ain't Gonna Cry" by Hawks and the other side had "Baby, I Got You," a duet with Hawks and Gwynn Kellum. Kellum appeared with the Night Raiders occasionally during this time.

The Night Raiders eventually broke up. Mickey Hawks kept on performing and played regular gigs in Europe during the 1980s. He died way too early in 1989. Moon Mullins stayed in the entertainment business. He owned a nightclub called "Moon's Danceland" in Madison, North Carolina, during the 1960s, where the Night Raiders would serve as the house band. He later also co-owned WREV radio in Reidsville, North Carolina. Mullins died June 30, 2014, at the age of 76. He was buried at the Woodland Cemetery in Madison.

Jim Cannon on Memphis

Jim Cannon - Highway Fever (Memphis M-329)

Jim Cannon is featured here with a country trucking song called "Highway Fever" on Memphis from ca. 1965. More on the Memphis label can be found here.

Cannon, a local Memphis artist, had another release on the Wescan label, "Brooms" b/w "Life's Stormy Sea" (Wescan #102), which was prossibly his own imprint. Cannon eventually had a moderate christmas hit with "Frumpy" in 1973 on the newly founded Fretone label. Fretone was operated by Estelle Axton in Memphis, once co-founder of Satellite Records, which would evolve into Stax.

Clyde Nelson & Ronnie on Tri-State

Clyde Nelson and Ronnie - Stairway to the Top (Tri-State 45-1923), 1968

Please excuse my reckless verdict here but the singer on this one, whether it's Clyde Nelson or Ronnie, didn't chose the right day to record. Not a good performance at all. I can't find no info on the artists but Tri-State was operated by Style Wooten. Click here for a discography of Tri-State.

The Story of Rock 'N' Roll Ruby

Warren Smith - Rock 'N' Roll Ruby (Sun 239), 1956

"Rock'n'Roll Ruby" - now a classic in rockabilly music history and covered by countless artists. The most famous and most successful by far came from Warren Smith, of course. When Smith realised he had a hit with it, he painted across his car "Warren Smith - The Rock'n'Roll Ruby Man." Judge by yourself if this was an arrogant move. His performance of the song, however, was reason enough for it.

Warren Smith, born on February 7, 1933, in Humphreys County, Mississippi, came to Memphis after his discharge from the US Air Force. He had been singing and playing guitar for some years by then and soon, Smith became acquainted with local musicians. He joined Clyde Leoppard's Snearly Ranch Boys, a country and western outfit that was quite popular in the Memphis and West Memphis areas. They played regularly on the radio and also were the house band of the Cotton Club in West Memphis.

Stan Kesler, songwriter and steel guitairst of the Snearly Ranch Boys, had written a country ballad entitled "I'd Rather By Safe Than Sorry" by then. He was impressed with Smith's singing skills and therefore arranged an audition with Sam Phillips at Sun Records. Although also impressed by the group's performance, he told them to come back with more song material.

At the same time, Johnny Cash enjoyed early success with "Folsom Prison Blues" (peaking at #4 on the Billboard C&W charts) and was touring the US. Today, Cash is credited with composing "Rock'n'Roll Ruby." He recorded a demo version of the song possibly in late 1955 at KWEM studio in Memphis. As Warren Smith (and Cash reportedly also) eventually stated, Cash bought the song from George Jones for 40$. In fact, Cash was touring in Texas during December 1955 and January 1956, perfoming both in Odessa, Texas, and at the City Auditorium in Texarkana on December 28 with Jones. Enough time to buy a song from another artist. May it as it be, we cannot be sure who was the actual composer of "Rock'n'Roll Ruby."

One night in February 1956, Sam Phillips showed up at the Cotton Club while the Snearly Ranch Boys were playing. Johnny Cash accompanied him and they invited Warren Smith to their table. Phillips suggested Smith and the Boys should record "Rock'n'Roll Ruby," which Cash obviously didn't consider for himself. A couple of days later, on February 5, the Snearly Ranch Boys went into Phillips Recording Service to back up Smith on his first recording session. The line-up consisted of Warren Smith on vocals and rhythm guitar, Buddy Holobaugh on electric lead guitar, Stan Kesler on steel guitar, Jan Ledbetter on bass, Smokey Joe Baugh on piano, and Johnny Bernero on drums, who replaced Clyde Leoppard. Also present were of course Sam Phillips as producer and reportedly Johnny Cash. The products of this session were outstanding performances of "Rock'n'Roll Ruby" and "I'd Rather Be Safe Than Sorry," released by Phillips on Sun #239 in March that year. Some copies had the song title misspelled as "Rock'M'Roll Ruby."

Billboard C&W "Review Spotlight", April 21, 1956

May 5, 1956 (note the wrong song title)

Billboard reviewed Smith's single first on April 21 and - when "Rock'n'Roll Ruby" had already hit the local Memphis and Charlotte charts - picked it as a "This Week's Best Buy." On May 26, Warren Smith hit the #1 spot on the Billboard Memphis C&W charts. Smith performed a string of shows with Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Eddie Bond, and Roy Orbison in the Memphis area, then embarking on a tour through Arkansas, Tennessee, and Mississippi with Orbison, who had just hit the charts with "Ooby Dooby." By July, "Rock'n'Roll Ruby" had sold more than 68.000 copies, a success that none of Sun's other top stars like Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins or Jerry Lee Lewis achieved with their debut releases.

"Rock 'n' Roll Ruby" hitting the local charts in Charlotte and Memphis

During the summer of 1956, Smith disbanded from the Snearly Ranch Boys after a dispute about the royalties of the single. He founded his own band with Al Hopson on guitar, Marcus Van Story on bass and Johnny Bernero on drums. Smith had four more releases on Sun between 1956 and 1959 but none of them really caught on with the audience. He returned to country music at the end of the decade and recorded one single for Warner Bros. at the end of 1959. Contrary to widely held beliefs, Smith was not covering under the name of "Warren Baker" on Warner. Afterwards, he signed a contract with Liberty and enjoyed his commercially most successful era with this label during the early 1960s, having several hits in the national charts. Though, his contract ended in 1964 and Smith's life fell apart. He became an alcohol and drug addict, had a severe car accident and finally spent some time in jail.

In the 1970s, Smith picked up courage and began to record again. The Rockabilly Revival of the 1970s gave him a new audience and some recognition he such much desired. He enjoyed his newly achieved "stardom" for a couple of years but died way too early in 1981 at the age of 41 years from a heart attack.

Apart from an alternate take Smith and the Snearly Ranch Boys recorded during the February 1956 session, also two live takes of "Rock'n'Roll Ruby" survived. One was recorded in 1956 at the Big D Jamboree in Dallas, the other one probably in 1959, when Smith had moved to California and played the Town Hall Party in Compton. He also re-recorded the song in 1976/1977 at the Real to Reel Studio in Dallas. The result was released in 1977 on the Lake Country label LP "The Legendary Warren Smith."

"Rock 'n' Roll Ruby" hitting the No.1 spot in Memphis, May 26, 1956

Already in the 1950s, "Rock'n'Roll Ruby" was covered by several artists. Johnny Carroll was the first to cover it on April 25, 1956 (Decca #9-29940), followed by Dave Burton (RCA-Victor #47-6535), Buddy Merrill (Coral #9-61649), and Rusty Draper (Mercury #70879X45). Jerry Lee Lewis (1957), the Night Rockers, Rusty Wellington, Ted Daigle from Canada (under the name of "Ruby") and Sonny Burgess (1964) also recorded it during this time. "Rock'n'Roll Ruby" became a classic and was covered by such artists as Brian Setzer, Sleepy LaBeef, Mark Knopfler, Art Adams, Charlie Feathers and others. Johnny Cash included it in some of his live performances during the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s.

Willie Gregg and Billy Thompson

Willie Gregg and the Velvetones - You Fool (Kay-Bar Dane KBD-044), 1966

I finally obtained a third Willie Gregg single, which makes me now the owner of three of four known Gregg singles. My favourite still remains his Waterflow 45. This Kay-Bar Dane release is much in the vein of his Bridge-Way recordings with slight soft teen sound and a soft country feel. The steel guitarist does some nice fills on these two numbers and Gregg sings with a calm, deep voice. Apparently, Gregg also released another version of "You Fool" on the Louisiana based Ringo label.

All I could say about Willie Gregg has been said in this post about his Bridge-Way single. More of interest today is the Kay-Bar Dane label. I know of several releases on this record label, of which two are of greater interest: one by Gregg and one by Texas western swing band leader Billy Thompson. A certain W. Thompson is mentioned on the Gregg single label as the A&R head of Kay-Bar Dane, which leads me to the assumption that Thompson was at least somehow involved in this venture.

Information on Thompson's early life came from the sleeve notes of an LP he recorded for Jesse Smith's Bo-Kay Records. According to Smith, Thompson took up the guitar at the age of nine years and began entertaining soldiers at Camo Barkeley during World War II. After he graduated from high school, Thompson joined the Miller Bros. Band. This western swing combo played in Texas and Oklahoma but by 1950, branched out performing also in New Mexico, Colorado, Arizona, and others states. It is said they rivaled Bob Wills' Texas Playboys in popularity at one time. However, they never found the recognition as Wills or other big names in western swing.

Billy Thompson began recording with the Miller Brothers in 1954 for the 4 Star label. The group also owned a nightclub called M.B. Corral Club in Wichita Falls, Texas, where they would play dances regularly. By 1957, Thompson had left the group and organized his own band, the Melody Cowboys. This outfit performed at nightclubs and dance halls around Odessa and Midland. That same year, Thompson and his band first recorded for Jesse Smith's Bo-Kay label. "Waltzing with Sin" / "A Love Gone Blind" was released on Bo-Kay #K-104. 

The Miller Brothers at M.B. Corral (Wichita Falls, Texas): Bill Jordan (steel guitar),
Billy Thompson (guitar), Leon Gibbs (fiddle), Dutch Ingram (drums) Jerry Byler (fiddle),
Sam Gibbs (bass), Lee Cochran (trumpet), Madge Bolin (piano).

In 1960, Thompson also recorded for Winston Records and with Freddie Franks for his presumably own Thompson record label. Also that year, he cut an album for Bo-Kay entitled "Big Balls in Cow Town" and became part of the Sam Gibbs Orchestra Service line-up (see Billboard clipping below from April 25, 1960). 

In April and May 1961, Thompson and his band backed George Jones at the Melody Club in Odessa. I'm not sure but this spot could have been Thompson's own nightclub. By September that year, Thompson took part in package tours organized by Harry "Hap" Peebles. On September 23, the tour kicked off with a show in St. Joseph, Missouri, that included Hank Snow, the Louvin Brothers, Bob Luman, Grandpa Jones, Margie Bowes, the Slater Sisters, and Thompson (with his - then billed - Melody Ramblers). The package mainly performed at state fairs in the Midwest. Apart from Thompson's outfit, also other western swing artists such as Merl Linday's band, Johnnie Lee Wills, and Mack Sanders performed on the same bills.

In 1965, Jesse Smith issued Thompson's version of the Don Gibson hit "Oh Lonesome Me" on Bo-Kay. Two years later, the Kay-Bar Dane label came into existence. Based in Orange, Texas, both releases featured credits to Tabitha Publ. Company also from Orange. There were possibly more releases other than these two which still have to be located. Thompson kept on recording for other small labels afterwards, including Zak-Tone, BJB, and Circle J. You can read more about Thompson's Bo-Kay LP on Hillbilly-Researcher.
