Losing My Religion

Today I am dipping into the wonderful 4CD Box Set 'Rockin' Bones (101 Rockabilly rave-up's)' from Rhino Records and as their website blurb states it's a celebration of sex, rebels, and rock 'n' roll from both big and small labels from 1954 to 1969 by long gone daddies and wild, wild women. My first pick was originally released on Diane Records, a subsidiary of Hi Records managed by Bill Black I think it was the only release on that label.

Next up comes the C&W performer Jim Flaherty who owned the Belmont Record Shop in Hartford and who recorded some singles for Connecticut's Frankie Records. This track has vocals by Howie Stange and was released on Jenn Records with 'This Old Bomb Of Mine' as the flip-side.
