Andy Starr day

Andy Starr is best remembered for his "Rockin' Rollin' Stone", now a classic tune in rockabilly music. He was born as Franklin Dellano Gulledge in Comps, ARK, on October 21, 1932. Starr served in the Korea war and later moved to Kansas. In 1955, he played on a local radio station, where the Lin Record Company heard him and offered a contract. Starr released "Dig Them Squeaky Shoes" / "The Dirty Bird Song" and changed to MGM in 1956, where he released his classic "Rockin' Rollin' Stone". Starr recorded several more singles, moved later to Alaska and returned to the States in 1965. He ran twice for Presidency and recorded two albums. Starr died in 2003.

I have compiled the following mp3-files from various souces:

1. Rockin' Rollin' Stone
2. Round and Round

3. Give Me A Woman
4. Dig Them Squeaky Shoes
