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.

Unknown artist #1

 
Unknown artist - What a Way to Go (unknown label), unknown date

I don't know where I picked up this Country sounding recording but it's a good one. Can anybody help?

UPDATE: Many of the visitors wrote me and identified the artist. Thanks! It's Jerry Inman - What a Way to Go (Tower 242), 1966. Thanks to HankTheSmoker, BobB, Svein Martin Pedersen, and Westex.

That's possible. I will try to compare it. Do you have a sample?

BobB said...

Pretty sure this is Jerry Inman. Recorded in 1966. Excellent recording.

No, I don't have it, but the voice seems very close to Jerry Inman, and your playing time fits very good what's printed on the label.
