The Doke label
|H.B. Jones (alias Phil Barclay)|
Jimmy Key was an influential figure in the Nashville music scene of the 1960s. He owned New Keys music that published also a lot of the Doke releases, led his Key Talent agency, and was a DJ, too. He managed such artists as Linda Manning, Dave Dudley, George Kent, Jimmy Newman, Shirlee Hunter, and many more.
H.B. Jones' first release was "Young Lost John" b/w "It's Raining (Doke #101) in 1958 under the pseudonym of "Phil Barclay." He followed up with three more discs, all in the rock'n'roll style. Most of the material he recorded was composed by him.
