Twanging Tuesday # 59


Another forgotten rockabilly singer/guitarist from Tennessee was Don Willis. He played audition to Sam Philips of Sun Records but got no contract. He later signed to Satellite Records and denied a contract to Mercury a far bigger label. So it's another great single that might be a classic if it was released on a bigger label with more abilities to promote them. Here is his first single 'Boppin' High School Baby' backed with 'Warrior Sam'. Both classics in this genre.
