Country Music Hall of Famer Little Jimmy Dickens turns 94 today. At 4' 11" he may be little, but he sure was loud! He's also the oldest living member of the Grand Ole Opry.
I always thought of Jimmy as a novelty song artist. I mean, as a record digger I had come across "May the Bird of Paradise Fly Up Your Nose" hundreds of times. As a result, I never really paid much attention to him until recently. It wasn't until I gave this 45 a listen purely on a whim that I realized his early records were absolutely KILLER rockabilly floor-fillers. Consequently, this is currently my favorite male vocal country dance record right now. Thanks Golden Oldies!

I'm excited to highlight some of my favorite records in a variety of genres (soul, R&B, classic country, rockabilly, oldies, garage rock, etc). These won't all necessarily be "dance" records per se. They will all be records that I believe deserve a special listen. I simply love good music, rare or not. Hopefully you will spend some time here and love music right along with me! Lets give this a shot!
