The Cold Hard Facts Of Life

Well Rest In Peace Porter Wagoner 12 Aug 1927- 28 Oct 2007.
These two tracks are dedicated to you.
I think there is no one better to play as a tribute to Porter than the great 'Human Juke Box' from St.Louis, the wondeful Sleepy LaBeef. These two tracks come from his LP on London's Charly Records released in 1979 titled 'Downhome Rockabilly' and to quote Max Needham (Waxie Maxie) on the liner notes
No One, repeat : no one, sings downhome rockabilly with more balls than Sleepy LaBeef.
