Extra Jimmies From the 1950's

Today's choices feature three Jimmies and one Johnny !. All these tracks were recorded in the late 1950's either 57' or 58' they are all brilliant in their own sweet way and can be classified as either Rockabilly or Hillbilly depending on your personal taste.
Jimmy Wages and the Jimmy & Johnny tracks can be found on Germany's wonderful Bear Family Records label and Jimmy Edwards is from the Rhino Records Box Set, so go find 'em. By the way for those viewers who don't know them the men featuring in today's main picture are British comedians the late Jimmy Edwards and the late Ronnie Barker.

Jimmy Wages - (Take Me) Garden Of Evil - (From That'll Flat Git It Vol 14)

Jimmy & Johnny - I Can't Find The Doorknob (From If You Don't Somebody Else Will)

Jimmy Edwards - Love Bug Crawl (From Rockin' Bones 1950's Punk,,,)
