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!

From Ohio, and in 1965, RALPH BUSH and the Brushwackers. He had one 4-track session for C-Flat (distributed by RCA), and three tracks are offered there. All fine Hillbilly boppers. “I’ve got the bluest feeling” (8543), “Troubles” (8544) and “My eyes don’t cry” (8545).

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.
