My favorite James O'Gwynn tune to this day is "The House Of Blue Lovers" still play it on my guitar and sing. The man was a solid Country Singer and I don't know why he did;nt get more popular.

I have a lot of James O'gwynn's 45rpm records , at least 25. He made a lot of good music. Among my favorites were --Don't We All Have The Right To Be Wrong now and then----Down On The Corner Of Love and I won't Love You Anymore Than You Love Me . He used to live just over
thirty miles from me in Arkansas . I did intend to look him up but he moved to Mississippi before I could
