Frances Favorite 45's
Cartwheel Records is the label where Billy Crash Craddock hit with Knock Three Times Dream Lover You Better Move On and Morehe was their bigger star. but the sound was great
I assume this is the same Ben Smathers that led the cloggers on the Opry for years
I don't share the same fear as Ben that the kids will only learn to ride the bus. My fear is they'll end up like the kids on the Ed Pinketts' "Welfare Schoolbus" http://a45blog.blogspot.com/2011/07/its-as-plain-as-black-white.html
Oh Bruce, funny ;-)
Well, sir... I look you straight in the eye & say to you; take me back to Tulsa.
Hey, there's a copy of this in Nixons presidential Library!! Here's how it's filed.Title/Event: Side One: "Busin' Them Younguns'"; Side Two: "Common as a Shoe"File/ID No.: 700000004 Format: DRParticipants: Ben Smathers, Singer Approx. Date: 1970Topic/Subject: Music RecordingsRestrictions: CopyrightProvenance: WHSF: SMOF: Boe, Box 10Remarks: The original is a 45 rpm disc recording.And here's what collection it's inThe White House Special Files materials were removed from the White House Central Files: Subject Files, Staff Member and Office Files (SMOFs), and Alphabetical Name Files in September, 1972, to secure perceived sensitivepolitical and administrative materials, personal materials relating or belonging to Richard Nixon, and documents containing the President’s handwriting. From September, 1972 to August, 1974, any of the aforementioned materials were automatically placed into the newly created White House Special Files collectionI think in the original listing "Boe" refers to Nils Boe who was the Director of the Office of Intergovernmental Affairsin the Executive Office.Almost as exciting as the Westport Kids sending on a picture to Truman isn't it? Wonder if Nixon was a fan?Anybody know who the H.E.W Ben refers to in the song is?
My B side is different. I have common as a shoe but it is not on this 45. H E W is what the Education Department and Department of Human Services was derived. It was simply known as the Department of Health Education & Welfare.
