Very cool, this is where Al Bell owner of Stax got his start in the record business. According to "Soulsville, U.S.A.: the story of Stax Records" this 45 was the one and only release by De'Voice records which was owned by Bell and songwriter Red Mathews while Bell was still a DJ in DC. According to the book it was financed by either doctors or dentists and The Atkins were former schoolmates of Bells. What a hilarious song and a great start to a stellar career. Thaks for the post!
DeVoice had several releases I own 2. The one to own is by a group called the Czars which is a tough find
My Dad always used to tell me "don't necessarly believe what you read" I guess once again he was right. Thanks for the info. Oh yea, I screwed up it's the Acklin Brothers not the Atkins. Marion Oliver (Doc Oliver), the guy who wrote "Junior's Angel" later went on to garner success with as a frontman with Soul Popcorn parts 1&2
This is a fun song that I'd never heard before - thank you very much!
Great fun. Thanks!The magic word is "licsivis" -- sounds like something you can't talk about in polite society.
