Tommy Duncan

Vocalist Tommy Duncan was fired from Bob Wills' Texas Playboys in 1948 after working with Wills for more than a decade and a half. He subsequently toured as a solo artist with various bands that, at times, included Bakersfield pickers like Bill Woods and Billy Mize. As the popularity of Western swing fell out of favor in the 1950s, Duncan began experimenting with his sound in an attempt to stay relevant in a changing marketplace. With honky-tonk and the emerging rock and roll sound capturing listeners' attention, he agreed to record this rocking Bill Woods original when Bill pitched it to him one night following one of Tommy's guest appearances at the Blackboard. It was almost certainly recorded at the same session as Woods' Go Crazy Man, and reunited Duncan with former Texas Playboy Johnny Cuviello. Already 46 years old at the time, Duncan sounds only slightly uneasy with rock and roll material, delivering a reasonably convincing performance.
