Guy Clark’s pencils. Just trying to picture lyrics flowing out of these. Another artifact from my photo shoot at The Country Music Hall of Fame. “Outlaws & Armadillos: Country’s Roaring ‘70s” open now.

It’s Wednesday, and this is a recent addition to the Winston collection so why not #WinstonWednesday? Winston was #SlimWillet ‘s label out of Abilene and featured everything from honky tonk to cowpuncher doo wop to desperate rock n’ roll. This here Ronald Mansfield disc from 1958 fits in with the honk tonk leanings of the label and isn’t horrible. It ain’t great, neither. But it’s probably the best thing Ronald cut between a handful of records on Winston and Beam Records. Ronald’s normal schtick was ballads and that wasn’t his strong suit. This has a nice bit of guitar work in the background, but the guitarist - Jim Seward?- never gets loose on a break. Instead, the breaks are both fiddle to steel transitions. Billboard liked it more than I do. Still, it’s one of those records I’d throw $25 down on via eBay. But mighty glad to have only paid a buck. Swipe left to dig. #TexasMusic#TexasRecords#WinstonRecords#SlimWillet#AbileneTx#idontneedrandomabilenebusinessestofollowme#45rpm#45rpms#RonaldMansfield#recordsmakesounds
