Crime Don't Pay

Today we are in bandit country, beginning with the man from Chickasha, Oklahoma who co-wrote 'Ring Of Fire' with June Carter-Cash and had a sustained career in C&W music until his death in February 2005. Merle released this single on Imperial Records of Hollywood, Calif. in 1959.

Merle Kilgore - Ride Jesse Ride

Jesse Lee Denson aka Jesse James was from Rienzi, Mississippi. This single was released on Kent Records in Sept, 1959. The track can be found on about 10 different compilations but I recommend Ace Records 'Rockin' From Coast To Coast Vol 2'.

Jesse James - Red Hot Rockin' Blues
