Honky Tonk Man

Apart from the fact that this is a really nice recording and probably a real surprise, I guess Kenny never cared much about numbering his records. ORK had (at least) three records with #35. Pressed in 1969 by Precision Record Pressing in Nashville. Thank you very much for this gem! Could you post the flip, too?

You know we dig Kenny Owens, He stuck to his Rockabilly Roots even in 1969 Great stuff. Thank you

Ork 45 - #35 = Long Long John / That Big Ole' Moon
Ork 45 - #OS35 = Honky Tonk Man / Mama Layed The Law Down
Ork 45 - OS35 = Ballad Of A Teenage Queen / Hey Porter
Anybody got any more?

He also recorded on Alley (AR) Poplar (MD) Reka (AR) Ruth (MI) NOTE the POlar label says Kenny OWEN not Owens. Larry Donn played in his band.

Yes, Larry played with Kenny from around 1969 up to 1970. It was his idea to start the ORK label, Larry told me some months ago before he passed away. He shared a lot of memories with me concerning Kenny.
