Big Sandy and the Fly-Rite Trio

Big Sandy and the Fly-Rite Trio recorded this single in 1991, the year following the release of their first album and Bobby Trimble’s replacement of drummer Will B.
Side A is a beautiful medium Rockabilly. The B side is just as successful, a superb melancholic ballad highlighted by the voice of Big Sandy/Robert Williams and the delicate pickin’ of TK Smith. Both songs are from Williams’ pen. The 45 version was released on Dionysus Records, but there is a much rarer 78 rpm version that the group published on Jeems Records, its own label (Jeems 1085).
