Late November 2014 fortnight’s favorites

This time, very various records. SLIM DOSSEY hailed from Kentucky, but settled in Kirkland, Washington, late ’40s, where he had his own TV show. He was at one time a member of Smokey Rogers Western Caravan. Here you will find his Tubb (Ernest?) penned “Don’t stand just there“. on the JR (Seattle) label. Romping music!
Slim DosseyDon’t just stand there“. [March 23, 2018. I add Dossey’s version of Hank Williams’ “Ramblin’ Man“, issued Jan. 1954 on Ace-Hi Hits 5011. Good version!]

Finally JIM FULLEN on the Deluxe label # 2015 and “I’ve gone crazy” from 1954. Fullen later recorded as Jimmie John,”Rosie’s back again” on Dot.
 It is not at all sure he’s the same Jimmie John who had “Solid rock” in 1958 on the Newark, Ohio, ZZ label.deluxe 2015 jim fullen I've gone crazy
