I don't have much info on him. Any help appreciated.
Allen "Zig" Dillon was born on January 1, 1923. During his career, he never became a major artist and only played around Kansas City, Missouri. His first record appeared in the summer of 1960 on the local R label featuring "On Down the Line" b/w "The Years Teach As Much". There's also an alternate take from "On Down the Line", which was first issued on the Collector CD "Automatic Bop, Volume 1" in 1997. Dillon recorded a follow-up, "Bird Song Boogie" backed by "Beetle Bug" sometimes in the 1960s, still on the R label. When R folded, Dillon disappeared from the scene.
Welcome to Mellow's Log Cabin. This blog's purpose is to supply information on a diversity of American southern music - ranging from country, blues, old-time and folk to R&B, rock'n'roll and rockabilly. I regularly present my research results about artists, labels, shows and also give guest writers a chance to publish their texts here on occasion.
