Group 6 is now open. Please rank these from best to worst.
In the same order..............
Red Hen Hop - Louvin Brothers -5
What the world really needs is my Top 1000 chicken records where the
McCormick Brothers will come bottom with the Louvins version (that
went unreleased (deservedly?) for years) marginally ahead on "clucks".
And of course mighty Amos Milburn in #1 spot
I like the Marylanders, Hop Wilson, "Icky Renrut," and the Dominoes too.
Yes some goodies there (which I've naturally appropriated :) .
