Billy Price on CMC

Billy Price and the Drifters - Two Different Worlds (CMC 745C-0932), 1968

Billy Price must have been a big Hank Williams fan, since he chose to cut two of the Drifting Cowboy's old numbers, "Two Different Worlds" and "You Win Again." Price's nasal voice seems to fit quite good to these songs and despite his limited singing abilities, the recordings come out quite enjoyable (mainly because of the background band, another reference to Williams).

Another discl from the chaotic numbered CMC label, owned by Dan Craft in West Memphis, Arkansas. See also CMC discography on Arkansas 45rpm Records.
