Country Music Week 1962



As you already know, this is Country Music Week here on the Ichiban blog. Here are some promotional recordings for the big event made by some of the usual suspects and, perversely enough, some not-very-country acts like Connie Francis and the Kingston Trio, who were obviously striving for some crossover success. The 1961 promotional announcements were uploaded to Ichiban yesterday and can be found here.
